Safeguarding Children in our Churches
Safeguarding: The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church.

Working with children, young people and their families both in church and in our community is one of our priorities as a Parish.
Children, young people and their families are always welcome at any of our places of worship. Neil Obbard is our Youth Evangelist and he is active in our community, schools and churches. He offers Youth Church every Sunday between 4 and 5pm at St Richard’s Church. He also runs Youth Clubs Friday evenings between 4 and 6pm for ages 8 to 11 and 7 to 9pm for ages 11 upwards. There are children’s groups available during Sunday morning worship as well as Little Angels for under fives, meeting during term-time.
We are committed to serving our community in a variety of ways by working alongside others. The Seacroft Children and Young People’s Programme runs events and family fun days, our annual Chance residential for children in partnership with Swarcliffe and St Gregory’s Playscheme and the Youth Kitchen at Youth Hub in the Denis Healey Centre in partnership with local voluntary groups. We also sponsor and actively support the Beavers and Cubs for boys and girls which meet at St James’. Please click on the links below for more information.
