In common with all churches within the Bybrook benefice, St Andrew’s strives to create and maintain an environment that is safe for all, promotes wellbeing and creates nurturing and caring conditions within the Church for children, young people and vulnerable adults.  In addition, we support our church officers to adhere to safer working practices and to challenge abuses of power.  

Our local Parish Safeguarding Officer is Mrs Nicola Wood, who can be contacted by email (

As a member of the Bybrook Benefice, St Andrew’s Parochial Church Council has reviewed and approved the Benefice’s safeguarding policy, which can be found here.
