Safeguarding is about preventing the abuse of children, young people and vulnerable adults.
As Christians we are charged to love and care for each other. This is particularly true where the most vulnerable members of our community are involved.
The Methodist Church takes its responsibilities in this regard very seriously. The Church has significant contact with children, young people and their families through its Sunday and weekday activities. All Churches within the Methodist Connexion are aware and informed about the issues related to Child Protection and are able to respond to situations that arise with appropriate action and/or advice.
These responsibilities extend also to organisations which may hire Methodist Church premises.
