Safeguarding 

Promoting a Safer Church

The church recognises its responsibilities in safeguarding all children, young people and adults at risk, regardless of gender, ethnicity or ability.

The members of the church are committed to the nurturing, protection and safekeeping of all associated with the church and will pray for them regularly. In pursuit of this,  they have agreed the safeguarding policy which can be viewed or downloaded using the link below.  The church is committed to this policy and to the development of sound procedures to ensure it implements the policy well.

If anyone is considered to be in imminent danger of harm, a report should be made immediately to the police by calling 999.  If such a report is made without reference to the Designated Person for Safeguarding, they should be informed as soon as possible afterwards.
 
The duty of the person who receives information or who has a concern about the welfare of a child, young person or adult at risk is to RECOGNISE the concerns, make a RECORD in writing and RESPOND by passing on their concerns to the Designated Person for Safeguarding.  
The Designated Person for Safeguarding (DPS) for Rothwell Baptist Church is SUSAN EDWARDS.

Sue Latest 

She will advise the church on any matters related to the safeguarding of children and adults at risk and take the appropriate action when abuse is disclosed, discovered or suspected.
Phone number: 07739 514402      
Email address: susan@rothwellbaptist.org.uk
 
Concerns should be passed on to the Designated Person for Safeguarding within 24 hours of the concern being raised.

Planning your Visit

A Very Warm Welcome 

If you are new to the Church (or any Church) or are simply thinking of coming along, then this page is for you.  Whoever you are, whatever your background, you are most welcome.  You don't need to be a Christian or be a "good" person,  Jesus welcomes all and we, at Rothwell Baptist Church want to do the same.

We would normally say at this stage, come along to one of our services on Sunday.  However, you will understand that at the moment our building is closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.   Don't worry though it's still possible for you to meet us at our weekly online service.

We meet using the popular Zoom conferencing software.  You can use Zoom on almost all phones, tablets and laptop computers.  A link to Zoom's web site is here.  If you own a Windows 10 S Laptop, then simply update your Edge browser to the latest version and you can access Zoom using that; it's easy.

We only ask that you contact us to get the Zoom meeting details.  You can then join and see what we are like, you don't have to say anything and we don't even need to see what you look like if you turn off your video.

So, you can find out all about us without leaving your front door, in complete safety and when the time is right, we would love to see you through our front door one day.
