Safeguarding Sunday

10th October 2021

This autumn, join hundreds of churches across the country who together, will be turning a spotlight on safeguarding.

Protecting vulnerable people is at the heart of the Christian message. Safeguarding Sunday is all about creating an opportunity for churches to show their communities that they take this responsibility seriously.

It's your chance, as a church, to use your regular Sunday service to explore together what safer places look like, and to thank all those working behind the scenes to make our churches safer for all.

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

Safeguarding Sunday

10th October 2021

“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
