The leadership team and trustees of Christ Church take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults extremely seriously. Our Parochial Church Council have adopted the House of Bishops statement on “Promoting a safer church”, and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook. Both these documents can be downloaded from the Church of England website.

Esther Cook is our Parish Safeguarding Officer and she can be contacted in confidence via email, or by calling the Church Office on 01634 845537.

If you or someone you are concerned about is in immediate danger, please call the police on 999
