Safeguarding Statement

At St Mark's we seek to create a safe environment for everyone.

At St Mark's we fully endorse the principles of "Promoting a Safer Church" (click for information). 

These are the principles of effective care and protection towards all who may be considered vulnerable within our church community, and have adopted the statutory guidelines, as laid down by the Church of England.

To the best of our abilities, we implement all recommendations, with all relevant personnel subject to selection and appointment in accordance with the 'Safer Recruitment' guidelines in the above document
[section 5].

We are as confident as we can be that St. Mark's Church provides a safe and caring environment, where all can gather, worship, pray, and be together - and we very much hope that you will find it so.

A copy of our 'Safeguarding' Policy, underlining the essence of "Promoting a Safer Church", can be found by clicking
