SAFEGUARDING

“Like all Church of England churches, safeguarding and safer recruitment are paramount.  The PCC are committed to ensuring that our church and hall are safe places for all who use them. For more detailed information and guidance see the Parish Safeguarding Handbook. https://www.rochester.anglican.org and click on safeguarding. Produced by the National Safeguarding Team, it is a comprehensive guide, summarising the key areas a parish need to address with regards to safeguarding.”

Pentecost service and reflection

This Sunday we are pleased to be having a communion service at our usual time of 10.45am. For more details see this week's Bexley Team News.  Please note that face masks are now required to be worn in all Places of Worship, unless there is a clear medical condition which gives you exception.  The person leading worship, and readers will be able to remove masks when speaking, so audibility shouldn’t be a problem..
