The aim of the Methodist Church Safeguarding policy is to create Christian communities of love and care, where good practice in this area becomes a way of life. Each church has a current Safeguarding Policy approved by the Methodist Church.  Our Ministers, Lay preachers, Worship leaders this includes Junior/Messy church and office holders have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks (previously Criminal Records Bureau  CRB )
