Safeguarding Policy

Horfield Methodist Church

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy

Every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of humans in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. Among other things this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.
