We take the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously at Christ Church.

We are committed to:

  • the care and nurture of, and respectful pastoral ministry with, all children, young people and adults

  • the safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and adults when they are vulnerable

  • the establishing of safe, caring communities which provide a loving environment where there is informed vigilance as to the dangers of abuse.
