Safeguarding children and young people is a priority in this church.

We are committed to following government guidelines on child protection and good working practice, including safe recruitment of workers. We work to a formal child protection policy and it can be seen on request from the church office. If you have any concerns regarding the safety or welfare of a child you can speak to Rev Stephen Cave or Mrs Gill Corker. They have been appointed by the church leadership in this church to respond to any child protection concerns.

Thirty-One Eight is an independent Christian charity providing child protection advice and support throughout the UK.

In an emergency, especially if someone is in immediate danger of harm, you should always call 999 straight away and ask for the police.

The thirtyone:eight Safeguarding Helpline is staffed by trained professionals who provide safeguarding advice and guidance and operate an out of hours service for urgent calls.
