At St Peter’s we are committed to the safety and welfare of children in our care.
Children are a vital part of the family of the Christian Church who deserve our respect and special attention. We believe we have a duty to attract children into the Church, to nurture their faith and, as they develop, to encourage them to take an active part in worship and other activities.
Eveybody who is recruited for a position working with children at St Peter’s is expected to comply with the policy and practices for the safeguarding of children from 0 to 17 years of age whilst taking part in any activity on our church premises or organised by our churches.
This updated policy was adopted by the PCC of St Peter’s Great Berkhamsted in May 2017.
