The Methodist Church, along with the whole Christian community, believes each person has a value and dignity which comes directly from God's creation in God's own image and likeness.  Christians see this as fulfilled by God's re-creation of us in Christ.  Among other things, this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.

Brookhouse Methodist Church is committed to the safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and adults and affirms that the needs of children or of people when they are vulnerable and at risk are paramount.

The full Safeguarding policy is displayed on a noticeboard in the Church.
