The Safeguarding of everyone (especially children and vulnerable adults) is of paramount importance to the whole Methodist Church. We emphasise that Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. To help us do this properly and thoroughly, we have regular training for those who lead groups and activities, we are diligent about official checks, and we have an appointed Safeguarding officer who can be contacted at any time (as well as the Minister):

The Reason We Exist Is...
Based on Matthew 22: 37-40 and 28:19-20:
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the greatest commandment.
And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. On these commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
This can be summed up in Matthew 5:16
Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works, and give glory to your Father in heaven.
Our Values Are...
Based on Galatians 5:22-23 and 1Corinthians 12:12-27
The fruit of the Spirit is love , joy, peace, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.
For just as the body is one and has many members and all the members, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For as in one Spirit, we were all baptised into the one body - Jews, Greeks, slaves or free - and we were all made to drink of the one Spirit...
