Church of England Diocese of Rochester St. Barnabas, Gillingham

Gillingham: St Barnabas

<div>Welcome to 0ur webpage. Our motto is reaching out and welcoming in. In normal times we are happy to welcome people to our church during the week to the coffee event. At the moment this is not happening.</div>

Today our thought and prayers are with the Queen and the Royal family following the announcement of the death of Prince Phillip Duke of Edinburgh. There will be a short prayer service tonight and tomorrow (10/04/21) the Church will be open from 10am until 2pm.

The safeguarding of all who are vulnerable is very important to us. We adhere to all the Safeguarding Regulations and Guidelines laid down by the Rochester Diocesan Safeguarding Team, details of which are available at www.rochester.anglican.org. In line with recent changes in those regulations we now have a team in place to deal with safeguarding matters, consisting of a Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO) who liaises directly with the Diocesan Safeguarding Team, a Children's & Young Persons' Officer and a Vulnerable Adults Officer along with a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Officer who is responsible for ensuring that everyone in our church who needs checking has submitted to the DBS system. In addition, all our ministers have undergone independent safeguarding training and we are currently updating that training in the light of recent changes to the Diocesan Safeguarding Regulations and Guidelines. We believe that St. Barnabas Church is a safe and happy environment for everyone and particularly so for children, young people and vulnerable adults and it is our intention to ensure that it always remains so.
