Safeguarding
It is about preventing harm to children and adults wherever possible.

We will develop a culture in our church that:

  • Enables a safe and caring community to provide a loving environment where there is a culture of ‘informed vigilance’ as to the dangers of abuse.
  • Enables and encourages concerns to be raised and responded to openly and consistently and protects children, young people and adults who may be vulnerable from actual or potential harm.
  • Ensures all people feel welcomed, respected and safe from abuse.
  • Values, listens to and respects children, young people and adults who may be vulnerable, encouraging them to be active contributors to the church community.
  • Encourages adults who may be vulnerable to lead as independent a life as possible.

Whether you are well-established in the Christian faith, feeling called to a new expression of your faith, or teetering on the edge of any faith, we hope you will find resources, inspiration and good company here with us.
