Our Children Matter

We, at Blyth Community Church, are committed to providing a safe environment in which our children and young people can grow in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We recognise that each child or young person is an individual with much to give as well as to receive. As a church we promise to nurture them in worship, in learning, in growth and in faith, helping them to be a valued member of our Christian family. We will listen to our children and young people and treat their wishes and feelings with respect.

We acknowledge that our work with children and young people is the responsibility of the whole church; to protect them and prevent any physical, sexual or emotional abuse or neglect.

To this end, each worker with children and young people must make themselves aware of and promise to observe, the guidelines accepted by Blyth Community Church. These are based on the guidelines and procedures published by the Baptist Union of Great Britain in its booklet “Safe to Grow” and by Crusaders in their leaflet “Best Practice Guidelines for Assistant Leaders and Helpers”.

A full statement of our policy and guidelines are contained in our document entitled "Our Children Matter", and you can download a copy in PDF format.
