Safeguarding Sunday is happening again in 2023! Join us this November to share with your community what your church is doing to make it a safer place for everyone, and to thank those who work behind the scenes to make it happen.

Whether you can give just a few minutes or can dedicate your whole service we'll have everything you need to help plan and run your event.

Over 3,000 churches took part last year from across the UK. Help us make 2023 our biggest year yet.

Last year churches who took part reported:

  • A greater understanding and positive awareness of safeguarding among church members.
  • People feeling able to disclose abuse for the first time.
  • It prompted people to volunteer for key safeguarding related vacancies and children and youth work roles.
  • Increased wiliness and motivation by workers to complete safeguarding training and criminal record checks.
  • Safeguarding Leads felt supported and affirmed in their role by the church.

We'll be releasing details about how you can register soon, in the meantime why not download the resources from last year.

“The greatest impact from our service was the feedback from parents and adult members. Children got to talk about possible situations where they'd need to talk to a grown up. Adults were reminded about their part in keeping vulnerable adults and children safe in our church.”

Ade, Birmingham

"Safeguarding is really being pushed forward within our Church at present and it is great that we are able to bring everyone on board by holding the Safeguarding Service, so that we feel we really are making it 'everyones responsibility' and creating a safe environment for all."

June, Liverpool

"Though our PCC and leaders knew our safeguarding policies the general congregation may not have had much idea.  It was really useful to be able to hang a service on the theme. I thought all the resources were really good and enabled us to put together a service very easily.”

Helen, Plymouth
