Everyone at Christ Church and St. Mary's has a duty of care to protect others from harm.

As places of worship we are committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of everyone who attends church activities, especially children and vulnerable adults. Our churches take this responsibility seriously and expect that all will work within the National Church's safeguarding policies.

Volunteers for roles are recruited and offered training in accordance with the Bath and Wells Diocesan Safe Recruiting procedures and those working with children and vulnerable adults will be required to have the appropriate DBS clearance.  

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and we expect anyone who is aware of safeguarding risks or actual abuse to raise their concerns immediately.  This can be done by contacting those listed below.
