Safeguarding & Inclusion

"Wherever I go across the diocese, churches are engaging in excellent children’s work and youth activities, as well as running drop-ins, lunch-clubs, food banks and street pastors, reaching out to some of the more vulnerable members of our society.
Because of the potential of just one person to cause terrible damage to the lives of children or vulnerable adults – and appalling collateral damage to the life of their families, friends and church community – the risk is one that we must guard against with utmost vigilance.
Could I therefore urge all parishes and worshiping communities to ensure that the protocols on these pages are implemented and reviewed regularly in line with diocesan policy, while thanking you for every way in which your church is having a transformative effect on the lives of others." - Bishop Andrew

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
