Children's Church is a get together especially for children (and parents/carers if they would like to stay) which includes a Bible story, action songs, crafts and lots of fun!
We meet on the second and fourth Sunday of the month throughout the year, in school term time.

Safeguarding

Please take time to familiarise yourself with our safeguarding policy;
A formal statement to adopt the House of Bishops’ “Promoting a Safer Church; safeguarding policy statement” was agreed by the Parochial Church Council and recorded in the minutes of the meeting on 8th June 2023.

Our safeguarding officer is Mrs Emma Collins, her deputies are Mrs Leah Gardner and Mrs Sue Shardlow.

We have a safeguarding team, who meet a minimum of three times a year, to review all safe guarding matters.

We follow the guidance from the Diocese of Rochester, and national church.
Following the guidance all people working with children, young people or vulnerable adults are safely recruited, and undergo appropriate training and DBS checking.

Safeguarding information is displayed at all our church venues.​
