Looking after our children at St B’s

Please can we remind all parents/carers that you are responsible for ensuring your children are kept safe at all times before, during and after the service (apart from when they are in Lightzone). This includes not allowing younger children to go out of the church unaccompanied e.g. for the toilet - (there have been instances of people coming in off the street to use the toilets).
Thank you. DCC and Pat Bowen nominated person for St B's Safeguarding
