Epworth And Scunthorpe Methodist Circuit

We believe that it is our mission and responsibility to safeguard all those who come into our care. This is living out our faith in service to the Lord.


If you need any help with any safeguarding matters, however small or unclear, even if it’s just a "feeling in your belly" about something or someone, a gut feeling or something that is just bothering you, then there are people you can turn to in your local church, the Circuit or the wider District. 

Each church should have on its notice board a flowchart of who to talk to with contact numbers.

If you are in any doubt or don’t want to go through your local church, then please feel free to ring me, Andrew Bamford, Circuit Safeguarding, on 01427 728192 or 07549 123574 email andrewbamford16@gmail.com

or contact Howard Smedley. District Safeguarding Officer on 07758 239286

I have tried to put as much information as possible about Safeguarding on these pages. If I have missed anything or any of the information is wrong please let me know and I will put it right straightaway.
