We believe that every human being is made in the image of God. It follows that we should honour everyone regardless of their age, capabilities, gender or ethnicity.
Protecting the vulnerable, whether adults or children, is a responsibility carried by all in Christian ministry; we cannot be satisfied until we are sure we have done all in our power to protect them from harm. Our churches must be a safe haven.
Update February 2017
We were expecting to publish the new revised House of Bishops Policy Promoting a Safer Church in March, this has now been further delayed until May.
It is good to welcome our new Assistant Bishop's Safeguarding Adviser, Sian Griffiths who started with the Diocese on 7th February 2017. Sian will be working on a part time basis and taking the lead eventually in the delivery of Safeguarding Training.
Our Training Strategy Plan has now been written, thank you for your patience we are hopeful to have a calendar of training events for 2017/18 and that you will be able to book within the next month.
