Church of England Diocese of Exeter Appledore


St Mary's takes safeguarding very seriously and the PCC have adopted the Exeter Diocese Safeguarding Handbook, promoting a safer Church.

Safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of us all whether they are in the communities in which we live or part of our Christian family.

If you have a concern regarding a child, young person or adult who may be at risk of harm please speak to our Team Rector, Revd. Derek Arnold T: 07789 631346.

If you are a young person and you feel unhappy about something happening to you, you can call Childline on 0800 11 11.
