Sunday 6th October at our 1030 gathering at St Peter's, sees Justin Humphreys, one of the CEO's of Thirtyone:eight speaking on, 'What would Jesus say to...' Originally from Bristol, Justin has worked in a variety of social work and youth work settings in both the statutory and voluntary sectors prior to joining Thirtyone:eight in 2010. Justin has also spent a number of years in local church leadership and governance in a thriving city church in the South West of England. He is passionate about advocating for issues of justice, the protection of vulnerable people, authentic leadership and a decent cup of coffee!
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and our churches work every day of the year to ensure they are safe places for all and it is always good to recognise this important commitment. Do support Safeguarding Sunday as we host it this weekend, to raise awareness and remind everyone why safeguarding is so important. There are also safeguarding resources and prayers, designed for use in worship on the Church of England website.
