Church of England Diocese of St.Albans Elstree and Borehamwood

St Nicholas

As of 17 March 2020, the Church of England has suspended all public worship until further notice.  Therefore, for the foreseeable future, there will be no public service at St Nicholas Elstree.

The churches in the Elstree & Borehamwood team are proud to be a part of the Diocese of St. Albans in the Church of England, whose Archbishops, Bishops, clergy and leaders are absolutely committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church.

Safeguarding means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture. This means we will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults, work to prevent abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.

The Church of England affirms the ‘Whole Church’ approach to safeguarding. This approach encompasses a commitment to consistent policy and practice across all Church bodies, Church Officers and that everyone associated with the Church, who comes into contact with children, young people and adults, has a role to play.

The Church will take appropriate steps to maintain a safer environment for all and to practice fully and positively Christ’s Ministry towards children, young people and adults; to respond sensitively and compassionately to their needs in order to help keep them safe from harm.

Although safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone here; Hazlyn Hazel is our designated Safeguarding Lead and can be contacted about any safeguarding matter on 020 8905 1365. You can also speak to Revd Tim Warr (Team Rector) on 020 8207 6603 or Revd Louise Collins (Team Vicar) on 020 8953 2362.
