Bury St Edmunds Circuit is committed to upholding the Methodist Church's Safeguarding Policy.  This is an integral part of our life and ministry.  Safeguarding is about the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture.  Methodist Church Safeguarding Policy states: "As Christians, we are charged to love and care each other.  This is particularly true where the most vulnerable members of our community are concerned".  Our Circuit will:-

  • Promote the welfare of children, young people and adults;
  • Work to prevent abuse from occurring;
  • Seek to protect and respond well to those that have been abused.

Everyone who works with children, young people and vulnerable adults and those in several other areas of church life is expected to attend the appropriate training courses of the Methodist Church's Safeguarding Programme "Creating Safer Space".
