Promoting a Safer Church
All Saints Church Anchorsholme is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk. Concerns about children, young people and adults at risk will be diligently and promptly responded to according to our procedures, recognising the sensitivity it may hold for those involved.
Our church and PCC have formally adopted the House of Bishops ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance.
Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Amanda Wooldridge. Details of how to contact her can be found by following this link – Contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer
All those working with children and adults at risk have received safeguarding training and benefit from regular and continued support.

Protection from Covid-19
What we are doing to keep people safe
The church leadership follow the advice and guidance given by the Government via the Diocese on how to protect people from Covid 19.
At present this means that we encourage people who do not want to wear masks to sit towards the front. This leaves space further back for those who want to wear one.
Church is also cleaned thoroughly after each meeting and the congregation is encouraged to use hand sanitiser on arrival.
