Safeguarding

As Christians we are charged to love and care for each other. We recognise that our work with children, young people (aged under 18 years) and adults at risk is the responsibility of the whole church. We believe that being part of the Christian family of the Church places responsibility on all her members, both institutional and individual, to ensure that the environment for all is safe.

This includes particular attention to children, young people and those who are vulnerable who wish to share in the life of the church and who are offered support and pastoral care by the church, both formal and informal.
