In particular, the Parish expects anyone who becomes aware of a safeguarding risk with children or vulnerable adults, or an actual abuse, to raise this immediately with the person(s) with responsibility for safeguarding within the Parish.

Thought for the week

BLESS THIS HOUSE – Blessing our homes at Epiphanytide. Even though the tinsel of Christmas may seem long gone we are still celebrating the Epiphany. During this season, there is a tradition of blessing homes and marking them with a sign of welcome based on the visit of the wise men to Jesus with their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Using chalk, the door or an adjacent wall is marked with either a simple cross or the traditional formula: 20 + C + M + B + 21. 20 - 21 for the year and then crosses between the letters C, M and B standing for the wise men and also the Latin phrase 'Christus mansionem benedicat', meaning 'Christ bless this house'.
