Safeguarding


Our Church follows the procedures which have been approved by the 2010 Methodist Conference and which came into effect on 1 January 2011.


By following these guidelines we aim to create a safe place for all. Our church community complies with the latest government guidance on Safeguarding.


"There is a growing understanding that protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults is at the core of our faith. Safeguarding is about creating churches that are a safe space for everyone; a space where children can flourish and adults can live up to their potential. It is about enabling everyone to come to Jesus without stumbling blocks of abuse, ignorance, fear, compassion fatigue or the failure to recognise the experiences that so many carry within our communities."


Doris Vaughan is our Safeguarding Officer.
