As Baptists we take the protection of children and adults at risk who are part of our churches very seriously. We provide advice and deliver safeguarding training, provided by the Baptist Union of Great Britain, to all our Association Churches.

Latest Safeguarding information from Baptists Together during the Coronavirus Pandemic is available here

The Excellence in Safeguarding training courses have been designed specifically for Baptist churches to ensure their leaders and workers are able to undertake their roles in the best possible way.


Who should attend training? The training is for people who hold different roles within the church:
