Safe Church Info

*Our Youth Customary is currently under review and will be updated by the end of the year.  Stay in touch to receive the updated version.  

In the meantime, those who work “regularly and routinely” with young people ought to go through Safeguarding God’s Children training and have a background check done.  Sunday School teachers (or someone serving in a similar capacity) are currently exempt from this with the idea that someone trained in Safeguarding and with a background check is overseeing them while they are working with the children.

For information on Safeguarding God’s Children training, please contact The Rev. Canon Katie Bradshaw.
