Safeguarding | St George's Church

We are in the ten days between Ascension day and Pentecost Sunday and the church worldwide is praying 'Thy Kingdom come'. The prayer is that the love of Christ Jesus would light up every corner of this dark world. During this week we are asked particularly to pray for the Covid 19 situation and St George's church is doing this every day. Find out more about 'Thy Kingdom Come' from the Church of England website where there are prayers, readings, videos, study materials and activities for our children. There is also a booklet to help us to pray about the impact of Covid 19. You can find those prayers on the 'What's on' page with the services as well as on the face book page. Join St George's for morning worship Facebook at 10am Monday to Thursday and Holy Communion live streamed from the vicarage at 10.45 on Sundays. The prayers and readings for this service can be found on the right side bar of the 'Whats on' page. Please keep yourselves safe and if we can help you or pray for you do let us know by using the forms on this website.

Children and Young People

At St George's Church we enjoy working with our children and young people and we take our responsibilities to care for them very seriously. All adults working with children and young people have been cleared through the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) and there is training to ensure that everyone understands their responsibility when they are working with children. We follow diocesan guidelines about ratios of adults to children and other health and safety factors.

The PCC reviews the Child Protection Policy annually. The support and guidance from the Diocese ensures that we are up to date and vigilant to keep all our children and young people safe.
