St John the Evangelist Bexley

Safeguarding Overview

Like all Church of England churches, safeguarding and safer recruitment are paramount. The PCC are committed to ensuring that our church and hall are safe places for all who use them. For more detailed information and guidance see our Safeguarding Statement. If you need to speak with someone, contact our Safeguarding Officer 

If you are a child or young person seeking more advice about safeguarding, especially if you are worried about something you or someone else has experienced in a church, online or elsewhere then you may find this page from the Diocese of Rochester helpful.

If you are an adult with a safeguarding concern and would like more information from the Diocese of Rochester, please refer to this page.

If you are a victim or survivor of abuse and would like information about how the Diocese of Rochester can support you, please visit this page.


If you or someone else is in immediate danger, please call 999 in the first instance.
