We believe that Churches need to take responsibility for how people (especially kids) are treated.

If you’ve been invited to be part of our kids or youth ministry teams, there’s a couple of things we require you to do:


1. Apply for a NSW WWCC

If you're going to be working with Children, you are required by law to apply for a NSW Working with Children Check Number.

It's easy to apply online here. Fill out your details and submit.


2. Take your Application to a Service NSW

Once you get your Application Number (starting with “APP”), take it to a Service NSW Centre to verify your identity.

They will verify your identity and after a few days/weeks they will email you a new WWCC Number (Starting with “WWC”).


3. complete or update your online safe ministry training

After you've got your Working with Children Check number, go to the HBC Online Safe Ministry Training course here.

You’ll be asked to register yourself with HBC with your name, DOB and contact details. Once logged in, you will need to complete the “Members Awareness Course” AND “Leaders Course”. As part of the “Leaders Course” you will be asked to provide details of two character referees and your WWCC details. 

Completing this training only takes about 30mins, but it gives you all the information you need to help keep our kids safe (as well as fulfil our legal obligations as a church).

If you have any questions, please speak to your ministry team leader or email
