Third Sunday of the Year
Welcome to the website of:
Due to the high COVID infection rate in Portslade and Mile Oak, the PCC has decided to suspend public worship until further notice.
During this time of lockdown, I will still be live-streaming the 10.00 am Sunday mass. If you have access to Facebook, look for the Parish of Portslade and Mile Oak page or click on the Facebook icon on this webpage or HERE.
Our churches will still be open for private prayer. However, due to the strict rules about cleaning and keeping public areas safe, we will only be able to open the churches at set times each week for the near future.
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 Sarah Peck. Please contact Sarah by ringing the parish office number 01273 410044. Please do not leave sensitive information as this answerphone is not secure.
