Wanted! Parish Safeguarding Officer.
The Parochial Church Council is looking to appoint a Safeguarding Officer to be responsible for implementing the Diocesan Safeguarding policy and to be the public focus for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults in our churches.
This is a key voluntary post. It would suit a member of the congregation preferably with some professional interest in these areas, for example a teacher, social worker, foster parent, health visitor, childminder etc. Ideally, the Safeguarding Officer should be someone who is not already an office holder or working with our children, young people or vulnerable adults, so that independence is maintained. Training and on-going support will be provided.
Please contact: Joan Goodwin for a job description and application form 01344 429840 or email
Closing date 13 September 2016 Interviewing 22 September
UP AND COMING EVENTS
Hurry and send your entries to Lynn
A new course has started, a course to explore principles in church growth and to develop a plan to lead our church into growth. There will be five more meetings for everyone. Nobody expects everybody to have all the answers right now. The course is a process, a journey that we are all taking together. By the end of it, our hope is that our church will have been transformed, so that the desire for growth becomes a natural part of what we do collectively and as individuals.
Meeting Dates - Tuesday after 7.30 pm Eucharist, in the Annexe
- 30th August
- 13th September
- 27th September
Thursday 1st September at 20.10
