SAFEGUARDING TRAINING IN-HOUSE
ANYONE WHO DOES ANYTHING WITHIN THE PARISH NEEDS TO UNDERGO BASIC SAFEGUARDING TRAINING IN-HOUSE
This includes all the choir, those who serve coffees and teas, siderpersons who welcome everyone, sound duties, servers, children’s groups, pastoral team and all the lay ministers and clergy. The Diocese of Rochester has sent out a new directive asking for many members of every Parish to undergo basic safeguarding training, C0. Arrangements have been made with the Diocese for Alan Strachan and Lawrie Townson to facilitate C0 – the first level of this training in-house.
Two dates have been arranged for you to attend, either Wednesday 28 November or Wednesday 05 December, both at 8.00pm, at Fawkham and Hartley Church Centre (you only need to attend one session).
Some may need to take further courses in the future. Marion Strachan will be contacting everyone who will need to undertake this training and you will need to book in on 01474 704972, so we can make arrangements for certificates to be issued by the Diocese after the course has been completed. There is the option of doing this training on-line in your own home if you prefer – via the Diocesan website, and go to the safeguarding drop down menu.
Please let Marion know the date you complete the course and print your certificate if you take it on-line.
