  • Safeguarding

    We aim to create safe environments, where children and young people are nurtured and protected; and where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable for any reason, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety. We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, and Church of England policy and practice.

    If you have a concern and need to make contact about a safeguarding issue, please contact one of the Safeguarding Officers: Judy Fletcher (07795 217 637) or Leslie Bell
