public seminar on duty of care

Seminari Theoloji Malaysia cordially invites all of you and your church leaders to an inspiring evening talk by the Reverend Dr Paul Barker entitled

Duty of Care by Ministers and Church Workers : Issues of Power and Trust

Date:  Friday July 16, 2010
Time:  8:00pm
Venue:  Level 5Luther Centre, No 6 Jalan Utara46200 Petaling JayaSelangor DE

Too often we hear of church workers and ministers who bully, abuse and act in scandalous ways. 

What sorts of protocols and procedures ought we adopt for ourselves and church leaders? 

How can we better protect our children and youth in ministry?  How can we both act with integrity and be seen to do so?

The Anglican church in Australia has had to deal with many of these issues in recent years and Paul Barker, a former Archdeacon in the Diocese of Melbourne, will speak on some of the protocols and recommendations in place there, providing ideas to help the churches in Malaysia act with greater propriety, love and care.

All are welcome, especially those in Christian leadership and ministry.
