LOVE COMES TO LIFE when we treat each other with courtesy and respect, and when the way we behave towards each other reflects the way God loves us.

Demonstrating God’s love for us, by the way we behave towards one another, is central to life in our church. It is important that we clearly articulate the standard of behaviour we expect from one another, not using vague language, but in useful practical terms. The LCA has adopted Standards of Ethical Behaviour that express in simple and clear language how we can demonstrate and declare God's love to one another by how we conduct ourselves in our:

  • personal behaviour
  • pastoral care
  • caring for children
  • communications
  • financial and administrative matters.

The Professional Standards Department (PSD) assists congregations and other bodies to promote high standards of ethical behaviour and care for all, and especially for children and others in vulnerable circumstance, by providing a comprehensive training program.
