"There is a  growing  understanding that protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults is at the core of our faith. Safeguarding is about creating churches that are a safe space for everyone; a space where children can flourish and adults can live up to their potential. It is about enabling everyone to come to Jesus without stumbling blocks of abuse, ignorance, fear, compassion fatigue or the failure to recognise the experiences that so many carry within our communities."

Elizabeth Hall, Former Safeguarding Advisor, Methodist Church in Britain



High Street Methodist Church has a Safeguarding Reference Team that meets three times a year to make sure we are up-to-date with our policy and that appropriate measures are in place to make sure our children and vulnerable adults are not at risk.
