Covenant of Care and guidance.

The Christian church is unique in that, based on the message of the gospel, it opens its doors to all. It has also been known that a significant number of sexual offenders living in the community also wish to attend church.

This may come as a surprise to some, a shock to others, and it is likely to stir up all sorts of feelings and strong opinions. The Church of England has strategies for managing people who have been convicted of sexual offences who wish to worship in churches. 

A Covenant of Care agreement/contract is available which is completed before someone is allowed to attend. A template is available - see icon and link at the top of this page - but the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser must be involved in drawing it up.

The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser

Heather works at Church House, Salisbury, 9am-5pm Mondays-Wednesdays and 9am-1pm on Thursdays. She is available Monday to Thursday, 8am-9pm, for urgent safeguarding discussions, via 07500 664800.
