Safeguarding

Promoting a Safer Church

At Holy Trinity with St John's Penge we are committed to the safeguarding of all children, young people and adults, and is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the church. 

Our Parochial Church Council (PCC) has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding.

Planning your Visit

New to Church?

If you're coming to Holy Trinity with St John's for the first time, this information will help you know what to expect.

Where and When?

Our 8am service is at our Holy Trinity Site (location details here). 

Our 10:30am service is at our St John's Site (location details here). 

For more information about our different Sunday services, please click here.

What about my children?

We actively welcome families with children of all ages. If your child is a baby or a toddler, they will remain with you for the duration of the service. A welcomer will give you a Toddler Bag as you come in - these contain a variety of toys and games to entertain your child. We are aware that it can be very hard for a toddler to remain in their seat throughout the service. If your child is getting restless, there is space on the carpeted area at the back where they can move about - and don't worry at all if they make a noise!
