Arthur Sara: August 2017
Safeguarding Training was held in April and May and I am delighted to say that just over 120 people attended those sessions. However some people were unable to attend for various reasons so a further session is being organised on Saturday 23 September at 10.00 am at Stoke Mandeville Methodist Church.
Those in the 'Must Attend' group have to be trained if they are to continue in their role. These are: · Lay employees & Volunteer Workers with pastoral responsibility · Pastoral Visitors · Anyone working with 0 — 18 year olds in the name of the church · Anyone working in activities targeted at adults who are vulnerable (e.g. luncheon club for the housebound) · Church Stewards, Circuit stewards, Local preachers, Worship leaders · Church and circuit safeguarding representatives · Choir/music group/drama leaders — where there are 0-18 year olds or vulnerable adults in the group.
Warmly invited but not mandatory: · Leaders of other organisations, working with 0-18yr olds or vulnerable adults, who use church premises · Remaining Choir/music group/drama leaders · Any other group leaders within the church, who may have adults within their particular group who are vulnerable. · Property stewards and other keyholders · Church/circuit meeting secretaries.
For more information on this training, email Arthur Sara on email@example.com.
