Safeguarding

The parish of St Aldhelm Edmonton is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of London’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

A prayer for the safety of all who come to our church

May the doors of this church be wide enough
to receive all who come seeking God and fellowship.
May the doors of this church be narrow enough
to shut out pettiness and pride, envy and enmity.
May the threshold of this church be no stumbling block
to young or frail feet.
May the threshold of this church be too high
to admit complacency and self-seeking.
May this church be, for all who enter,
a safe place and the doorway to a richer life in Christ.
Amen.
