Safeguarding

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy

The Methodist Church, along with the whole Christian community, believes each person has a value and dignity which comes directly from God’s creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. Among other things, this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.

Wesley Methodist Church is committed to the safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and vulnerable adults and affirms that the needs of children or of people when they are vulnerable are paramount.

Wesley Methodist Church's full policy, which may be found here, was agreed at a Church Council held on 9 February 2017 and will be reviewed annually.
