Jesus had strong words for those who misused and mistreated children. The PCC of St Peter's affirms the principles of the House of Bishops’ Policy for Safeguarding (‘Promoting a Safer Church’) and is committed to the nurturing, protection and safekeeping of children, young people and all vulnerable people in its care.

You can download and view our safeguarding policies on our website.
