Safeguarding and Privacy


St Mary’s Church takes its responsibilities to safeguard the welfare of all those with whom we have contact seriously, and the PCC have dopted and abide by the policy Promoting a Safer Church, issued by the House of Bishops.

If you have a safeguarding concern, are worried about someone or suspect abuse, or would like to report misconduct, please contact the Parish Safeguarding Officer or the Rector via the contacts page. The Parish Safeguarding handbook can be downloaded here.

There is further information and contact details at the diocesan website if you require further assistance.


There is a privacy notice available for St Mary’s and for St Agnes’s. There is also a privacy notice governing the parish electoral roll at both churches.
