Protecting children and those who work with them


The church takes its responsibilities for safeguarding children and young people under the age of 18 seriously and is committed to its Safeguarding Policy and Procedures.  These are monitored and reviewed on a regular basis.  All our staff and volunteers over the age of 18 have valid, enhanced DBS certificates and go through an interview process before they join the Children’s Ministry team. Copies of the Safeguarding Policy and Procedures are given to all those who work with children (including young people under the age of 18) and everone is required to follow them.

The Safeguarding Policy is on display in the church entrance hall along with details of our Designated Persons for Safeguarding. Copies of the Policy and Procedures are available on request from the church office for any member of the church, the parents or carers of any child or young person from the church or any other person associated with the church.
