We are committed to following legislation and government and denominational guidelines in the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, including safer recruitment of workers.

We work to a formal safeguarding policy and this is always displayed in church.

If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child or a vulnerable adult you

can speak to our Safeguarding Co-ordinator, who has been appointed and commissioned by the Leadership Team in this place of worship to respond to any safeguarding concerns.
