Children and others who may be vulnerable are always welcome at any of our services, and are an integral part of life in each of the church families.
We take their safety very seriously indeed, and our latest safeguarding policy, is available here. If you have any concerns about children or vulnerable adults at church, please contact one of our safeguarding team immediately. You can contact our safeguarding officers (Ann McCabe for St James and St John's, Dave Howe for St Martin's) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You're also very welcome to contact Simon Tomkins (the Vicar) directly if you would like to. If you'd prefer to talk to someone outside the churches here, Lichfield Diocese Safeguarding team can be called on 01543 306030 (0303 003 1111 out of office hours). If you suspect someone is in immediate harm, please call 999 straight away.
