Safeguarding for the protection of adults and children from harm, abuse or neglect. Every church should adopt safeguarding policy statements for children, young people, and adults at risk. We help churches maintain safe environments for all, with processes to follow should something go wrong, and support for everyone involved.

How well I remember walking up and down on a calm Sunday evening by the sea-shore with one who had lost two gallant boys, one in France and one beneath the burning Eastern sun. As he told me of the awful struggle raging in his soul, how he had prayed and prayed that they might be spared, and then of the midnight and wreckage of faith when both fell, I saw that in this coming time which will have suffered and lost so much and in which so many lights have gone out, the sects as such can do nothing at all. The things they stand for in their divisions may be true and good in so far as they go, but they do not matter. They simply and finally do not matter. If the churches can together keep one steady light burning to guide the tempest-tost to the haven, then in the name of God let them do it.
