Safeguarding at Grace Church
As the Bible reveals, God is concerned for all people, but He has a special concern for those in society who are vulnerable. As ambassadors for God in His world we at Grace Church Bath (GCB) share His concerns.
We take very seriously, therefore, the safeguarding of children, young people, and vulnerable adults. We are committed to safe practices, safe recruitment, and ensuring that GCB is a Safe Space For All. We have signed the Safer Places Pledge where we aim to speak up, put survivors first, conceal nothing, take responsibility, make change happen and hold each other accountable.
The GCB Leadership Team, comprising of the Pastor, Elders and Core Group, have agreed a Safeguarding Policy, ‘Grace Church Bath: A Safe Space For All’ (as above). This policy exists within the wider policies of the Diocese of Bath and Wells, available HERE and the Church of England Parish Safeguarding Handbook, available HERE
