Our Commitment to a Safe Environment

One of the core goals of our Children and Youth programs here at OneHope Baptist Church is to provide a safe, secure and loving environment for children and young people in our care.

We know that the parents of children or youth connected into the OneHope community value the high priority placed on ensuring that children and youth have a fun, engaging experience in a safe environment.  In an effort to accomplish this, we place several security measures in place to protect the children, their parents and the church.  Part of this is the requirement that all young people under the age of 18 are ‘checked-in’ and ‘checked-out’ when taking part in our official programs WHEN NOT ACCOMPANIED BY THEIR PARENTS OR CAREGIVERS.

On most occasions we will use a KIOSK touch screen system for this process which feeds data directly to and from the church database. The person ‘checking-in’ the young person in will be provided with a printed ‘check-out’ receipt specifically for each person they ‘check-in’. It is the policy of OneHope Baptist Church that possession and presentation of this receipt authorises the holder to ‘check-out’ the young person and take them into their care. We highly recommend that you DO NOT give the ‘check-out’ receipt (provided at check in) to the young person.

The information on this form is collected to ensure that your child’s participation is as enjoyable and safe as possible.  Failure to supply the information will limit our ability to both care for your child appropriately and provide an environment that is safe and enjoyable.  This information will not be used for any other purpose.  If you wish to access any personal information held about your child or find out more about OneHope Baptist Church’s privacy policy, please contact the Executive Pastor through the church office or call (03) 5249 0200.

You will need to complete this form for each child or young person (under 18 yrs) taking part in programs at OneHope.
