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.

OUR

MINISTRIES

Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we'd love to meet you and welcome you into St John's family.

 

We know it can be overwhelming or intimidating to meet new people and come into a new place but our welcome team is more than happy to say hello and make you feel at home.

Have a look at the ministries below and don't hesitate to ask any questions. Hope to see you soon!

Youth

Our vibrant youth group meets every Friday from 6pm to 8.30pm. Chloe Masih and the team have loads of stuff in store for the group and a chilled atmosphere where you can make true friendships. (11-16 year olds)

The Table

The Table is St John's new congregation led by Idina Dunmore and the ministry team. It's an informal Jesus-centered worship gathering with stories, prayer, music and food. The Table happens once a month in the Parish Centre hall. Everyone is welcome. Please check the What's on page for upcoming dates.

Messy Church

Messy Church is a way of being church for families involving fun. It is found across the world and its values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. At St John’s, Messy Church is held after school about once a month on a Friday between 3.30-6pm.  Activities are focussed for Primary-school age children, and families from all faith backgrounds & none are offered the opportunity to connect with Jesus through games, sports, crafts, prayer and stories from the Bible. We finish with a meal for all the family, when we celebrate birthdays and enjoy time together.

Children's Ministry

Kim Mall and team run the Children's Ministry on a Sunday morning.  The session runs alongside the adult church service in the Parish Centre.  The aim is to provide our young worshippers with an insight to following Jesus  and to be able to learn and praise together in a fun environment. Please note you will need to register your child when they go out to this group. (3-11 year olds)

Home Groups

Home Groups are spaces for friendship, studying the Bible and prayer. Please see below for some of the groups which are currently meeting and which you might like to join:

Alpha Course

We run Alpha course from time to time and also a course follow up. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
