Oakleigh Community Church is one of the St Barnabas team of churches (St Barnabas, Oakleigh Community Church, Church@five and Faith House) and therefore we share policies with the St Barnabas Church.


Safeguarding Policy

We are committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults. We want our children and young people to thrive, have fun and meet with God - all in a safe environment.

We adhere to the London Diocese Safeguarding Policy which is contained in ‘Promoting a Safer Diocese’ (2018) and further guidance can be sought from the National Church’s Safeguarding Policies and Practice Guidance. Our CSOs, clergy and parish staff refer to the National Church’s Parish Safeguarding Handbook for advice on responding to concerns.
