Welcome to the website of:
14th Sunday of the Year (Trinity 4)
Although the Government has partially lifted the ban on public worship, I have been on study leave and, therefore, I have not yet met with the Standing Committee to make sure we are adhering to all the regulations and guidelines set down by the Government, the Church of England and our Bishop. We will be meeting on Monday via Zoom. Hopefully, we will be able to begin Sunday services again next Sunday (12th July). There will still be restrictions on numbers, communal singing and receiving Holy Communion. I will post the new rules on this website as soon as the Stadning Committee has studied them. Let us all pray for the gift of patience at this frustrating time.
I will be saying mass at 9.00 am. as usual on Sunday. I shall be in the church of the Church of The Good Shepherd, Mile Oak. Sadly, the doors will still be closed. I will be, Deo Volente, livestreaming the service via Facebook (You can click on the Facebook icon on this page). If you can make your way to the Parish of Portslade and Mile Oak page, you should be able to watch it live or catch up later. After mass, at 10.30 am, there will be an opportunity to meet up for coffee and chat thanks to Zoom. If you want to join in, please contact me for the invitation link and I will email you the necessary information. My email address and phone number are below.
As members of this PCC we are committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of all our members.
We recognise that safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.
We are committed to implementing all safeguarding policies and practice guidance issued by the House of Bishops
We will carefully select and train all those who work or volunteer in positions of trust. We will use the Disclosure and Barring Service, amongst other tools, to check the background of each person.
We will respond, without delay, to every concern made that a person for whom we are responsible may have been harmed.
We will co-operate fully with statutory agencies during any investigation concerning a member of the church community.
We will seek to ensure that anyone for whom we have pastoral responsibility who has suffered abuse is offered support that meets their needs.
We will respond appropriately to those who have committed sexual offences who wish to join our fellowship, following House of Bishop's guidance and the advice of the Safeguarding Team.
We will review this policy annually and as part of this process will ensure that all our procedures, particularly in relation to the Disclosure and Barring Service, are up to date.
Our Safeguarding Representative is Jennie Davies. Please contact Jennie by clicking HERE!
