Just popped briefly into Ludlow mainly to look at the outside of the Methodist church which I quite liked, though whether it would be right for our new town centre building is another matter!
While I was there I dropped into another church where the Child Protection Officer was trying her very best to persuade a very reluctant church person, that it really was worth having a Child Protection Officer and that CRB checks should be kept upto date. Seeing she was getting almost nowhere despite quoting recent happenings in the Catholic church ,she resorted to "It Is the law you know!" This all gave me strong sense of Deja vu !
Why is it church people struggle with this so much given all that has happened in recent years?
Surely it is our responsibility to do all we can to keep children safe?
