COE Training - 29th Nov 2019 to 30th Nov 2019

Code of Ethics Workshops

Gore - 29th Nov

Dunedin - 30th Nov


PCANZ Code of Ethics Workshops are being run again this year in Gore on November 29th and Dunedin on November 30th. This is a key way the church is resourced to respond appropriately to keep our people safe. 


The workshop will include

  • The team will introduce the Code of Ethics

  • Set it within our wider context of the Book of Order and the Conditions of Service manual

  • Use scenarios to provide learning and reflection of key aspects of high ethical behaviour in practical situations - in particular truthfulness; confidentiality; exploitation; harassment and abuse

  • Reflect, refresh and affirm characteristics of compassion and natural justice 

  • Reflect and learn on areas of competence - including supervision; opportunities for spiritual growth; stewardship of time; upskilling; strengths and limitations; collegiality and respect; boundaries and wellbeing

Please Note:

  • Attending the PCANZ Code of Ethics Workshops is a requirement of ministers every three years

  • Elders are encouraged to attend as well along with ministry leaders and those with specialised ministries

  • Each workshop will be preceded by a cuppa of tea or coffee so we are set and ready to go at the start time. 

  • Please advise Alan if you are coming so we can estimate numbers
