The Vale of Aylesbury Methodist Circuit — Safeguarding
To all Churches in The Circuit.
Please make the following information widely known in your church
In 2012 Pete Honeyball and I delivered the safeguarding foundation module to about 180 people in this circuit and Conference has decreed that this needs to be updated every five years and so I have organised 4 sessions to begin this process.
They are as follows: —
Tuesday 25 April at Christchurch, Thame at 7.00 pm
Thursday 4 May at Aylesbury Methodist Church at 2.30 pm
Thursday 4 May at Aylesbury Methodist Church at 7.00 pm.
Wednesday 17 May at Stewkley Methodist Church at 7.00 pm
I have tried to vary times and days so that people can attend at least one of these training sessions.
