Annual Assurance of Providers of SRE
Some of our C3 Churches in NSW are reaching out into their school communities by teaching the Word of God through SRE (Special Religious Education) via legislative guidelines provided by the Department of Education and Communities. SRE classes provide an opportunity for students to develop an understanding of the Bible.
All C3 Church SRE teachers form part of the one team "C3 Churches NSW SRE” and are required to have a verified Working with Children Check; complete Anglican Youthworks SRE Training; Child Protection Training; participate in regular training and development team meetings and are authorised by C3 Church Australia leadership with an ID card. A letter is provided to schools before the start of term 1, or as required, stating that C3 Church SRE teachers have met the requirements outlined above and which includes the name of authorised teachers and their date of birth and contact details.
