Our Commitment to Safeguarding
“We are committed to creating a safer culture within the walls of the Worship Centre. As a Church we must demonstrate a duty of care to safeguard all children and vulnerable adults from harm. All children and vulnerable adults have a right to protection, and the needs of all people who may be particularly vulnerable (either permanently or temporarily) must be taken into account when considering their involvement in church life and the support that is offered to enable them to live fulfilling Christian lives”.
The Worship Centre abides under the policies of the CCPAS. As a result, all our children’s workers are police checked.
