The Church Missionary Society (CMS) is a fellowship of Christian people and churches committed to global mission. CMS works with churches to set apart long-term workers who cross cultures to share the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our fellowship includes CMS Australia and six branches working together: CMS NSW & ACT | CMS Queensland with Northern NSW | CMS – SANT | CMS – Tasmania | CMS – Victoria | CMS – WA |
- Child Safety Policy *
- Harassment and Bullying Policy *
- Anti-money laundering and counter terrorism policy **
- Anti-trafficking and anti-human slavery policy **
- Anti-fraud and anti-corruption policy **
- International Sanctions Policy **
* Minor variations to some policies may exist across CMS branches as they are separate legal entities in different jurisdictions. Refer to the relevant branch for more information.
**These are CMS Australia policies.
National Redress Scheme
CMS has joined the National Redress Scheme. The National Redress Scheme provides acknowledgement and support to people who experienced institutional child sexual abuse. The Scheme started on 1 July 2018 and will run for 10 years.
For more information on the National Redress Scheme, visit www.nationalredress.gov.au or call 1800 737 377.
CMS Australia also operates a Pastoral Care Assistance Scheme for redress that is not covered by the National Redress Scheme.
