Past Case Safeguarding Review

All parishes are required to participate in a Past Cases Review, commissioned by the Church of England. PCR2, as it is known nationally, is part of the Church’s ongoing scrutiny of its handling of past and current safeguarding cases. An Independent Reviewer will be looking at files relating to church officers in this parish, both lay and ordained, past and present. Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser. However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the Church, a dedicated telephone helpline – 0800 80 20 20 – operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC, has been set up.

Thank You and Job Opportunity. After two years job sharing our Church Administrator role, Carolyn Barker is stepping down.  We thank Carolyn for her service and support to the church family in this role. There is, therefore, a vacancy for someone to take on this role from 1st April. Also after many years of faithful service, Mark Barker will be stepping down as Church Treasurer at the APCM. In order to ensure a smooth handover, we would like to identify a new Treasurer as soon as possible.  If you feel that God is calling you to this ministry, or you would like more information, please contact: Mark, David or one of the Churchwardens regarding the voluntary Treasurer role and the Church Office regarding the administrator role.
