Downton Baptist Church is committed to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. Our safe to grow statement is: As members of this church, we commit ourselves to the nurturing, protecting and safekeeping of all, especially children and young people, as laid out in our Policy Statement. We ask all members to be vigilant for the safety of our children in the building at all times, especially on a Sunday morning.


The safeguarding policy is under regular review and is displayed on the notice board in the foyer.  All those leading work with children and vulnerable adults have a DBS check.
