Guidelines for conduct at Assemblies of the Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT:
Members and Attendees of an Assembly attend for the express purpose of engaging with the matters at hand and participating in the discussion, discernment and decision-making that occurs at that Assembly. Members who are church delegates are also representing their church community. Any activity outside of this purpose during the Assembly including recording the assembly, posting on social media or speaking with media representatives is not permitted and may lead to removal from the Assembly.
Following Assembly, Assembly discussions and outcomes should be reported back by church delegates to their own churches. Any social media or other public discussion should be in general terms only and at all times maintain a tone of Christian grace and respect.
