Every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. This implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.
At St Mary le Strand we are committed to ensuring that our church is a safe place for everyone. We take the safeguarding and care of children, young people and vulnerable adults very seriously. We are committed to maintaining the House of Bishops’ Safeguarding Policy, Promoting a Safer Church.
The PCC of St Mary le Strand adopted the above policy on July 2nd 2019.
The Parish Policy Statement and Procedures on Safeguarding are published with the diocesan policy statement on the church notice board. Copies can be obtained from the church office via firstname.lastname@example.org
