Safeguarding at BCC

At Bawtry Community Church, we take seriously the care of children, young people and adults at risk of harm. We believe that everyone is created in God's image, and we all have value and worth. We see safeguarding as part of our biblical mandate to love, serve and care for one another. We seek to be a church that honours Jesus Christ in all we do including this vital part of church life. We work hard to ensure that all our activities operate in line with current best practice and follow the statutory and specialist guidelines as recommended by thirtyone:eight - see
