Safeguarding and Governance

Here at Trinity church we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of all children and adults within our church community. We will challenge any abuse of power by anyone in a position of trust and respond without delay to any complaint, cooperating with police and the local authority in any investigation.

Church members and others linked with our church are encouraged to report any concerns they have, however big or small, to the safeguarding officers (Mark Oliver, and Ruth Maxwell), church wardens, or other members of the leadership team. Please see the Safeguarding Policy for other contact details and procedures.

We will work to ensure there is no negative comeback for those who raise their concerns.

“If one part [of the body] suffers every part suffers with it, if one part is honoured every part rejoices with it”
1 Corinthians 12:26

Governance

At trinity church we work hard to be a well run church but sometimes things go wrong or we make mistakes. To help put things right we have various policies in place including a complaints procedure which can be found here.  If you have any other questions on this topic then please get in touch.
