As a parish we are committed to upholding the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church; safeguarding policy statement’. Our Safeguarding statement was originally signed on behalf of the PCC in 2016 and is reaffirmed by the PCC each year. Click here to see the document.

Our safeguarding procedures are informed by those detailed in the Church of England's Parish Safeguarding Handbook. Click here to view the handbook.

If you wish to discuss a safeguarding matter in the parish, please contact our PCC Lay Chair, Mr John Redford (we are currently without a Safeguarding Officer) on 01670 862141.

The Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor, Ruth Rogan, can be contacted by phone or email:
