Safeguarding is a really important part of our disciplesip and our life together as a church. We aim to make sure our church is a safe and welcoming place for everyone.

The parish safeguarding policy can be found on the tab at the side of this page. It was adopted along with the House of Bishops policy document 'Promoting a Safer Church' at PCC on the 24th January 2019.

Please make use of the information on this page if you have any concerns or queries.
