St Mary’s Church, Reed is a beautiful little church with a spiritual and peaceful atmosphere and its services are in the main quiet and prayerful and for many it is a very special haven.
The Church, parts of which are of late Saxon period, although not having a huge congregation, is nonetheless much loved. This is not only reflected in the recently formed Friends of Reed Church (a registered charity), but in the many people who give freely of their time to support the Church in myriad and sundry ways.
The parish of Reed and Buckland is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of St.Albans’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
