Parish Safeguarding Policy

The University Church is committed to:

  • The care, nurture of, and respectful pastoral ministry with, all children and all 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 a culture of ‘informed vigilance’ as to the dangers of abuse.

Below you can find details of our policy and procedures which have been developed in line with guidance from the Church of England and statutory authorities. The aim is to ensure a safe environment for everyone who wishes to worship at the church, visit or contribute to its activities. The policy is discussed and reviewed regularly by the Parochial Church Council. This policy was updated at the PCC meeting held on Tuesday 14 February 2020.
