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.

How you can donate and help st john's

So much is achieved through volunteer work and donations at St John's. These two aspects are the backbone of what we do together in ministry and in the community to further the Kingdom of God in Southall and offer the real hope that is in Jesus. 

Through your generous giving, we are able to maintain the Youth ministry, the Toddler Group and others, but also to be able to afford an administrator at an extremely busy Parish Centre and to  maintain the buildings in good condition.

 

The story goes that this church was built by fundraising through a penny a brick campaign. St John's is a centenary building that has been passed down to us to preserve and use for many generations to come. As the founding stone of 1909 remarks it's all 'for the glory of God' - we'd love you to be part of it!

Thank you for considering donating and volunteering at St John's. Please check below how to do it.
