Thought for the week

Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world.  

All things break; and all things can be mended.

Not with time, as they say, but with intention.

So go.  Love intentionally.

The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.

Safeguarding Policy

Ensuring a Safe Church for All

The Church of Scotland has a deep concern for the wholeness and well-being of each individual. Through its congregations, working together with the Safeguarding Service and statutory agencies, the Church seeks to safeguard the welfare of all people who come into contact with the Church and its services.

The Gospel proclaims that it is the reponsibility of everyone within the fellowship of the Church to prevent harm, be it physical, sexual or emotional, and we will always seek to reduce risk.

The Church's commitment to safeguarding reminds us that God cares passionately about the welfare and well-being of all people.
