At Church of the Martyrs we hold to the following key principles for safeguarding:

  • We should strive to be a church where those who have been hurt by abuse find compassion and people ready to travel patiently alongside them.
  • We should strive to be a church where those who commit abuse are called to face human justice, hear God’s word of judgement and repent and believe the good news.
  • We should strive to be a church where all people are welcomed into open and secure communities that make known Christ’s reconciling peace.
