Ensuring a Safe Church for All

The Church of Scotland has a deep concern for the wholeness and
wellbeing 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’s the responsibility 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 wellbeing of all people.
