180 Methodists from the Vale of Aylesbury churches attended one of our safeguarding courses in 2012. This reflects the importance we attach to providing safe places for children, young people and vulnerable adults. The Methodist Conference has decreed that this knowledge needs to be updated at least every five years. So four new courses are now planned for April and May. They are:
Christchurch Thame, Tuesday 25 Apeil at 7.00pm.
Aylesbury Methodist Church, Thursday 4 May at 2.30pm and 7.00pm
Stewkley Methodist Church, Wednesday 17 May at 7pm.
