Safeguarding 

The Diocese of London is committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults to worship and grow in Christ safely.

St John's Church takes very seriously the wellbeing of every person within our church community and values each equally. We have adopted the House of Bishops' "Promoting a Safer Church – Safeguarding Policy Statement for children, young people and adults." The leadership of the church reviews all safeguarding arrangements on a regular basis and ensures up to date DBS checks are in place, with all staff and volunteers receiving safeguarding training. We have robust systems in place to respond to concerns of abuse whether sexual, physical, emotional, financial, spiritual or any other kind. For further information:
