Our Safeguarding policies and documents

Why does Safeguarding matter in a Christian community?

Jesus talked of the kingdom of God belonging to children; he gave them status, time and respect.  Jesus also showed himself to be compassionately on the side of those without power, reaching across social barriers with the inclusive love of God.

A Christian approach to safeguarding children, vulnerable adults and those in abusive relationships therefore asks both individuals and communities to create a safe environment for them, to act promptly on any complaints made, to care for those who have been abused in the past, and to minister appropriately to those who have abused.
