Sunday School

Do you have children aged 3–8? If so, perhaps they would like to join us in the crypt every Sunday morning beginning at 9.45am with a short talk and prayer by Canon Andrew. Our time together is based on the same theme as the service upstairs but we have stories and things to make, drawing and colouring, games, and – most of all – we have fun! The resources used are linked to the weekly gospel readings. The children are brought back up into church at the point in the service when we share the Peace, and sit with us in the front rows, or they can go back to you if they prefer. We hope your little one(s) would like to join Sunday School – you can stay with them if you feel they would be happier. If you are not sure how to find us, please ask the people who hand out the hymn books and they will happily show you.

Please note that there will be no Sunday school during the month of August 2018. The last Sunday will be 29th July 2018 and we will resume on 2nd September; however, there will be children’s activity packs available on arrival for any families who attend church during August.

Safeguarding

Holy Trinity is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of all children within the church community, and also to encouraging all people, especially those who may be vulnerable, to worship and lead a Christian life in safety.

We are also committed to the implementation of the Diocese of Salisbury Safeguarding documents and the relevant statutory legislation and guidance for the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

The Church Council review and agree the Parish Safeguarding policy and the Code of Conduct for Volunteers working with Children and Young people. The Church Council also appoint a Safeguarding Officer who will be responsible on behalf of the Parish Priest and PCC for implementing the Diocesan policy in respect of safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.

Parish Safeguarding Officer: Mrs Angela Bament
