Poughill: St Olaf, King & Martyr

The Church of England Safeguarding Children Policy ‘Protecting all God’s Children’, has as its first principle: “We are committed to the Safeguarding, care and nurture of the children within our church community”.

Within its Safeguarding Adults Policy ‘Promoting a Safe Church’, The Church of England’s first principle is: “We are committed to the respectful pastoral ministry of all adults within the church community”.

The Diocese of Truro wholeheartedly endorses these principles and wishes to provide support, advice and information to all those in its parishes who give of their time – both paid and voluntarily – to work with vulnerable adults and children.

Here too at St Olaf's we take safeguarding seriously.

Ensuring that children and young people as well as adults are kept safe whilst in our care is an integral part of our church life. If you have any concerns about safeguarding please contact:

In the parish our Safeguarding Co-ordinator is Dan Archer, who can be contacted on 01840 261626

Our Sunday morning services are times of worshipping together, hearing and learning from God's word. Once a month we have a communion service, and we always have Sunday Club for children at the same time in our Church Hall which is just across the road from the church.

A lunch, time to chat, maybe watch a film or listen to a speaker or some other activity
