A Safer Church
Both Churches take the safeguarding of children,
young people and vulnerable adults very seriously.
Please contact the Diocese of Manchester Safeguarding Officer Abbey Clephane-Wilson on 0161 828 1451 or our
Parish Safeguarding Co-ordinator Jacqui Adams on 07708 928271 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
or our Curate in Charge (Revd Paul Pritchard) if you have any Safeguarding concerns about the Parish.
The Diocese of Manchester partners with thirtyone:eight in relation to Disclosure (i.e. DBS) services and accessing their safeguarding Helpline when required. For DBS related queries, please contact them on 0303 003 1111 option 1.
In the event of the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser being unavailable due to being on holiday or other absence, you will be advised to contact thirtyone:eight for safeguarding advice on 0303 003 1111. This also includes any emergency safeguarding queries outside of office hours on weekdays and weekends. An Information Sharing Agreement between the two organisations will allow the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser to receive a copy of the advice thirtyone:eight may offer the parish church/caller.
2 Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17:
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!"
We aim to have Jesus at the heart of everything we do, not only in church as we worship, but in our daily lives, work places, schools and homes.
