Baptist Insurance Services is a ministry of Australian Baptist Ministries and operates as a “delegated body” of the National Council.
All Queensland Baptist churches are covered under Baptist Insurance Services (BIS) which is underwritten by various insurers through brokers and managed by the BIS board.
Should you wish to obtain detailed information on the nature of covers offered through Baptist Insurance Services, please visit the Baptist Insurance Services website. Baptist Insurance Services also release quarterly newsletters with lots of information and updates. You can access the newsletter archives here.
If your church needs a hard copy, or if the internet is not available to you, you can also refer to the “Risk Management Guide for Churches” produced by Baptist Insurance Services in 2016, as this is still a great basic resource for all your risk management practices. All churches should have a hard copy but extra copies are available for $25 plus postage. Please contact Alison Ellem (contact details below) to order.
For all travel related enquiries, please contact Alison Ellem (as per contact details), and she will assist you.
Please note, Ministry travel is to cover travel that is recognised as an official mission arm of the church, that is endorsed by the church leadership, with full accountability being assumed by the church.
Work Health and Safety Training
BIS have added the “ Identifying Hazard Training” to their website. This is a good tool for our churches to use in identifying hazards at their own church and other church owned properties.
The training session should take approx. 30 min max to complete but is invaluable to your church.
The training module can be accessed via by either clicking on the link below or by going to our website and using the Work Health & Safety Training menu.
