In 2012 Arthur Sara and Pete Honeyball 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
During April and May and September 5 sessions of safeguarding training were arranged and over 160 people in our circuit were trained, however I am aware that there are quite a few people who need to attend the training who were not able to do so for various reasons.
I am therefore organising at least one more session of training on Wednesday 29 November at Aylesbury Methodist Church from 7.30 to 9.30 pm So that we may adequately prepare please inform me of those who wish to attend. Tel 01296 484310 email firstname.lastname@example.org
As has been stated in the past The Methodist Conference has decided that it is essential that all people who need to do so must attend this training or cease to hold their roles in the church.
The Circuit meeting in September agreed that Church councils should insist on this training and if it is not completed by the Spring of 2018 those concerned should be asked to step down from their present roles. The training in November may be the last before that Spring Deadline.
The following people must attend:-
All preachers and worship leaders
All those who work with children
All those who work with vulnerable adults
All those employed by the Methodist church
All Safeguarding Officers
In addition those who are appointed as pastoral visitors are invited to attend and any other post holders.
Please publicise this course in your churches and ensure that all those who must attend do so.
If there are any problems or questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
