We are happy for any child to remain in the main service but if you would like to use the creche
you are welcome to stay with your child or leave them with the helpers.
We expect children to make a noise so please don't worry if your child cries or makes a noise,
please do whatever is best for you and them.
We have an active Safeguarding policy and all our volunteers working with children or vulnerable adults have a DBS certificate.
Hearing Assistance

We have a loop system, however, if at any time you cannot hear during worship please do let the person operating the sound desk know (during a hymn or at another appropriate moment) and
they will try to address the issue. We want the entire congregation to be able to hear
the service so please don't be shy about letting us know.
