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.

Community

From Little Angels Toddler group to senior citizens, we offer a variety of activities for the Southall community throughout the week.

We're blessed to serve and love our neighbour regardless of social background, ethnicity or faith. Our vision is to enable and resource people to flourish and prosper in our community.

Check out below how you can take part.

Listening Space

Many women do not have anyone that they can just "talk to". Many Women need someone to just listen to their daily life problems. Our aim is to help women in their emotional well being in order to stop the increase of mental health issues, benefiting our children of the future and society as a whole. 

Coffee Morning

Join us every Thursday morning 10am-12 noon for a chance to enjoy a hot beverage, home baked cakes and lots of fun in the company of St John's senior group. For those who wish to stay on, midday prayer is held immediately after our coffee morning for thirty minutes for anything that people would like prayer for.
