ST JOHN'S CHURCH SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT

Every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. This implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.

  • We accept and endorse the principles set out in ‘Safeguarding in the Diocese of London’.

  • We commit ourselves to nurture, protect and safeguard all our members, particularly children, young people and vulnerable adults.

  • We recognise that safeguarding is the responsibility of the whole church community.

  • We undertake to exercise proper care in the selection, appointment, training and support of those working in both paid and voluntary positions with children or vulnerable adults, including the use of Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosures and making appropriate referrals to the Disclosure and Barring Service.

  • We will respond without delay to concerns or allegations that a child or vulnerable adult may have been harmed, cooperating with the police and social care services in any investigation.

  • We will challenge any abuse of power by anyone in a position of trust.

  • We will seek to offer pastoral care and support to anyone who has suffered abuse, developing with them appropriate pastoral support.

  • We will seek to offer pastoral care and support, including supervision and referral to the proper authorities, to any member of our church community known to have offended against a child, young person or vulnerable adult.

If you have any concerns please contact our Safeguarding Officer.

Welcome to

'...and there before me was a great multitude that no one

could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, 

standing before the throne and before the Lamb.'

Revelation 7:9

FAMILY

A warm welcome to St John’s Church Southall Green!

As a diverse community of ages, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, we seek to be a small foretaste of the great multitude which is described at the end of the Bible in Revelation 7. We are committed to sharing the joys and the struggles of life together, as a Christian community, while also seeking to serve the wider community of Southall Green in which we live and worship.

Everyone is welcome in our church, so we hope to meet you soon!

Anna Poulson, Vicar. 

 

Holy Week and Easter Services

Sadly, we’re approaching a Holy Week and Easter like we’ve never had before. While we’re not able to worship together physically, there will be plenty of online services to enable us to walk with each other and with Jesus through the events of Holy Week towards the cross and the empty tomb on Easter morning.
 
I hope you will be able to join me next week to worship Jesus - our Lord who suffers with us through this painful time, and whose victory over death assures us that even this terrible pandemic cannot separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:38-39).

 

Anna Poulson

Vicar of St John's Southall Green
