We take seriously our responsibility to safeguard children and young people, vulnerable adults and those in abusive relationships.  We aim to create a safe environment where children and young people, 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 we follow the Church of England policy and practice.  To read more, click on the images, below.
