In order to assist the clergy in the running of the parish and in presenting the views of parishioners, our parish has an active parish council, whose remit is goverened by Canon 536 of the 1983 Code of Canon Law.
The Constitution of the Parish Council can be found here.
In order to maintain a safe Church environment, we have implemented Health, Safety and Welfare policies in our Churches the details of these policies are available for download below:
The Parish recruits all volunteers with contact with children and vulnerable adults according to established Church guidelines, carrying out background checks including enhanced DBS checks where necessary and legally permitted.
