Safeguarding Sunday 2019

This Sunday 13th October help us to raise awareness of safeguarding in your church or organisation.

Join us on Sunday 13th October.

This October join us as we seek to raise awareness of safeguarding in our churches. Our campaign 'Safeguarding Sunday' is a great opportunity for your church to highlight all it is doing to create safer places, and to publicly thank and acknowledge all those working tirelessly behind the scenes to make it happen.  It's your chance to:

  • talk about all you have in place to safeguard vulnerable people
  • explain why safeguarding is so important
  • introduce your safeguarding team
  • acknowledge and thank your volunteers
  • pledge together as a church to create safer places for all

You'll be joining with churches up and down the country who throughout October will be highlighting all the incredible work that is being done, and sharing the good safeguarding stories from within the church.  Protecting vulnerable people is at the heart of the Christian message and so we want to take this opportunity to show our communities that we take this mandate seriously.

To help you do this we'll be creating a pack full of ideas to help your church get involved including: posters, prayers, song ideas, activities and preaching plans.  Put Sunday 13th October 2019 in your church calendar (if you can't do the 13th pick another date in October) and register your details below to be the sent the pack when it's ready.

“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. The video was really useful and enabled us to talk about all of our responsibilities under God's safekeeping. I thought all the resources were really good and enabled us to put together a service very easily.”

Rev June Asquith, Liverpool

"The person who came forward to talk to me, did so because I had done a "Safeguarding Sunday" talk using your material and video - so it is having an impact"
