Christ Church Sparkbrook is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in our activities. See our Safeguarding Policy for steps we are taking to ensure a safe environment in our church. Our policies for Children, Young People, and Vulnerable Adults, give more details. This is in accordance with the Church of England Birmingham Diocese's Promoting a Safer Church Parish Policy.

Everyone has a responsibility to speak out when the safety of others is threatened or has been violated no matter where it happens. If someone attending a Christ Church activity shows signs of possible abuse, we will respond by offering help to provide safety and an end to the abuse according to our Domestic Abuse Policy.
