Safeguarding

At St Margaret's we are committed to safe working with all vulnerable people whether children or adults. We keep our policy and approach up to date and informed. All our volunteers are strongly encouraged to undertake training in Safeguarding and we endeavour to comply fully with the Diocese's requirements in all respects.

 

If you have any questions please ask the Vicar, Rev Jules A. Barnes or our Safeguarding Officer Penny Hayles. You will find their contact details in the sidebar and also here

Our Values

To be a genuine community church, rooted in the life of the village and sharing the joys and sorrows of its people.

 

A church where everybody who encounters us feels truly and profoundly welcome.

 

A coming together as ‘church’ expecting and welcoming a transformation, a growing Christlike character both in each individual and in the whole church community.

 

A place that recognises that this transformation will often be an uncomfortable experience, which people will need courage, good friends and wise advice to persevere with.
