What we do...









We take Safeguarding seriously. At our PCC meetings in November 2015 we agreed to adopt the Diocesan Safeguarding Policy as our own.
We also take Privacy seriously. At our PCC meetings in 2018 we agreed to adopt and amend the Church of England "Parish Resource Recommendments" Privacy Policy to suit our own requirements.
