Comprehensive Guidance (for Pandemic Protocols, see separate section)

These policy and guidance documents are being continually revised.  They are currently in their 14th Edition (July 2020).  All the policies are reviewed annually at the beginning of September.

The most recent edition has been updated to cover a more detailed reference to Online Safety.

Occasional, residual references to the “Deanery” and the “Dean” refer to inherited Church administrative structures and personnel, some of which may significantly change over the following months and years. Bearing in mind these factors it is vitally important to check this page regularly if you are relying on any information published here.
