The Church has a growing children's and young people's ministry. The Church leadership takes seriously its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people entrusted to the church's care.

We, as a church, take our responsibilities towards children very seriously. We will aim to provide a safe and secure environment in which the nurture and development of children can take place within the Christian Faith.

We are committed to:

  • listening to, relating effectively and valuing children and young people, whilst ensuring their protection within church activities
  • Encouraging and supporting parents/carers.
  • Ensuring that Children's and Youth workers are given support and training
  • Having a system for dealing with concerns about possible abuse
  • Maintaining good links with the Statutory child care authorities.

We, as a church, have a Child Protection Policy logged with the Churches' Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS).

We ensure that all children's and youth workers are CRB checked through Criminal Records Bureau and the Disclosure Service.

During the Wednesday evening activities we

  • Have a security person controlling access to the premises
  • Have a leader accompany each child from the two younger groups to the main toilet door
  • Maintain a ratio of at least 1 leader to every 8 children

Owing to regular changes to the Child Protection Policy we are holding ongoing training with all children's workers.
