At BEC we take seriously the care of children, young people and adults at risk of harm.  We believe everyone is created in God’s image, having value and worth, and we see safeguarding as part of our biblical mandate to love, serve and care for one another. We seek to be a church that honours Jesus Christ in all we do including this vital part of church life, and work hard to ensure that we operate in line with current best practice and follow statutory and specialist guidelines, as recommended by thirtyone:eight (independent safeguarding specialists).
