Safeguarding Training – what is your status?

It is important that everyone’s Safeguarding status has not expired and is as up-dated as possible. Why?

  • most importantly, taking the well-being of others, especially vulnerable persons, with the utmost seriousness
  • with that, recognition of our own tendencies to pre-judge and make assumptions
  • the overall position of the Methodist Church – connexionally and locally – if (when) issues do arise
  • our qualification to hold office, exercise responsibility, & undertake tasks within the Church.

For most of us, this means undertaking updated Foundation Training; for some, advanced modules also.

If you are not clear about your current ‘status’ (level of training last undertaken & when), please check with Sue M-J.

There are still plenty places available on the Foundation training taking place online on Saturday 20th August from 10 am-1 pm.  Anyone required to complete or refresh with the Foundation Module should  sign up here

If online training is not possible or useful for you, please contact Sue M-J so other methods can be arranged.

Broughty Ferry Churches Group – Gala Week Songs of Praise

BFCG has participated in this traditional Week over the years, more recently with a United Songs of Praise and it is proposed to do so again this year. The Songs of Praise will be held in the New Kirk (Queen Street /St Vincent Street corner) on Sunday 10th July at 6.30pm.

It is hoped that the hymn selection will come from among as wide a range as possible of BFCG member churches (which includes Dundee Methodists). Let the Eassons know your choice & reasons for it by phone or email.
