Safeguarding

Safeguarding

The Church of Scotland has a deep concern for the wholeness and wellbeing of each individual. Through its congregations, working together with the safeguarding Service and statutory agencies, the Church seeks to safeguard the welfare of all people who come into contact with the Church. The Bible proclaims that God cares about the welfare of everyone. The Church of Scotland seeks, through its congregations, to put this into practice.

At Strathbrock Parish Church we are committed to ensuring that all who come to our buildings, especially the young and vulnerable, are safe. Any concerns at all about a member of the congregation should be reported to the Safeguarding Officer or the minister and the concern will be treated in the strictest confidence. As a people of God it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure our church is a place of safety and trust. There are Safeguarding notices in our buildings giving telephone numbers and more details.

Our Safeguarding officer is Mrs. Margaret Lumsden, and together with our minister, Rev. Hanneke Janse van Vuren, they can both be contacted with any concerns for the safety of those in our congregation and all who visit and use our buildings. Contact the Church Office at office@strathbrockparish.org.uk  or 01506856433 or our minister, Hanneke, at hjansevanvuren@churchofscotland.org.uk or 01506206045.
