Teaching the Bible in the Heart of the Town

Safeguarding at Holy Trinity

Safeguarding in the Diocese of Chichester | Safeguarding in the Church of England

Throughout the Bible, God reveals his special concern for those who are vulnerable in society. As God’s people at Holy Trinity, we share his concerns. To this end we take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults seriously seeking to encourage good practice amongst the whole congregation and volunteer workers. 

The PCC is committed to the Diocese of Chichester Parish Child Protection Policy Statement – a copy of which is on display in the church office and the main church notice board.
