Safeguarding and Child Protection

Our church is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of the children and people of all ages in our church community.

Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy

This policy  must be adhered to by all Church workers. It must also be followed by any users of the church.
Our policy and procedures have been developed in line with guidance from the Methodist Church and statutory authorities. The aim is to ensure a safe environment for everyone who wishes to worship at the church, visit or contribute to its activities. The policy is discussed and reviewed regularly by the Church Council.
This policy was last reviewed at the Church Council meeting held on Monday May 13th 2019.
