St John the Baptist Church recognises and values children, young people (anyone under the age of 18) and vulnerable adults as equal partners in the life and ministry of the Church, and desires to encourage them to explore, discover and live out the Christian Gospel.  The Parochial Church Council takes seriously its obligations and  responsibilities to protect and safeguard the welfare of any children, young people and vulnerable adults entrusted to the Church’s care.
