Promoting a Safer Church

 As a parish we have adopted the House of Bishops ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the
Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance.

 Our PCC has formally adopted this and signed the 
Safeguarding Policy Statement  Promoting a Safer Church.

Details of our parish safeguarding officer can be found in the box above on this page.

We have also displayed the
Promoting a Safer Church poster prominently within our parish

All those working with children and adults at risk have undergone safer recruitment, received safeguarding training and support.

​Our Vision: We want to get closer to God through prayer, to serve people

in our community in new ways and to grow more in faith and membership.
