Privacy at CoroUniting

As a church community, CoroUniting collects, stores and uses information you provide us in accordance with the Uniting Church Privacy Policy.

Our Privacy Contact Person is Sue Laycock, our Office Manager. She can be reached via the Church Office.

Privacy and Live Streaming

  • Our services are generally live streamed on both our online platform and our YouTube channel as well as available later on our website and app. Signage at the church alerts people to this and suggests sitting in the back half of the sanctuary in order to avoid being captured on video. In particular the front left section of the church (by the drum kit) is an area popular with some young families and is regularly captured on our live stream (as indicated by signs in this area).
  • If you have any questions or concerns re. your privacy in regards to live streaming, please contact Geoff Diment.

See the linked documents and website for further details including links to:

  • Privacy Manual (2014)
  • Congregation Prayer & Privacy (2014)
  • Presbytery & Synod Privacy Policy (2014)
