Safeguarding

City Church, as part of Elim, is committed to making sure that all children and vulnerable adults are in a safe place.  To do this we adhere to comprehensive safeguarding practices working with our National Leadership Team.

Statement of commitment to safeguarding from Elim's General Superintendent

Statement of commitment to safeguarding

"Elim is committed to creating healthy churches and safe spaces for all. We recognise the ways in which children and adults can be at risk of harm or abuse, so endeavour to create a culture to minimise opportunities for abuse to occur. Children rely on adults to keep them safe, therefore all our churches working with children, either directly or indirectly, are committed to safeguarding children in their care.  We seek to do this by providing a safe, stable, and nurturing environment where children can reach their full potential. Similarly, within our churches there are adults in need of protection, care and support due to vulnerability, whether that is a permanent or temporary state. We are aware too that within our churches there are relationships of trust, which flourish best within healthy churches and environments, where there is openness, transparency and accountability.

We firmly believe that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, and all involved in the life of our churches and activities have a role to play in keeping children, young people and adults safe."

Here in St Albans, our all leaders, volunteers and staff working with children or young people are DBS checked and we provide regular safeguarding training to keep our team up to date.
