Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life and we always set out to do that well.
We see ourselves as 'family' and want to treat people in a way that is thoughtful and kind. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten, confuse or worry people. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that's happening or something someone is doing. We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding This means they look after everyone's safety.
