Promoting a Safer Church
We are committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We seek to ensure that our church is a welcoming and safe place for all who come through our doors.
We are members of the independent safeguarding specialist charity, Thirtyone:eight, and have adopted their safeguarding policy for use within our church, as well as strictly following all guidelines from our regulator, the government’s Charity Commission.
