At the PCC meeting held on 8th June 2017 the PCC of St Nicolas’, Guildford adopted the Church Of England “Promoting a Safer Church” Policy Statement, national  policies  and Practice Guidance of the House of Bishops and supporting diocesan safeguarding protocols.  This is reviewed annually.

“Promoting a Safer Church” sets out the Church of England’s commitment to making the church a safer place for all.

The Policies and Practice Guidance applies to all Church bodies and officers and under new legislation all authorised clergy, bishops, archdeacons licensed readers and lay workers, church wardens and PCCs must have due regard to safeguarding guidance issued by the House of Bishops.

The Policy Statement, Policies, Guidance and Protocols are available to view on the diocesan website at
