A Warm Welcome from the Bishop

The Bishop of Maidstone has a national role in encouraging and helping local churches in the Church of England whose understanding of the Bible is that men and women should have ‘complementary’ rather than identical ministries in the Church. However, all of us want to give priority to the good news of the gospel rather than this particular issue.

Safeguarding Statement

The Bishop of Maidstone is committed to the Church of England’s policy for safeguarding children, young people, those involved in domestic abuse, and vulnerable adults, but does not have responsibility for dealing with safeguarding queries arising in parishes or dioceses with which he works. These queries should be directed to the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser in the diocese in which the concern arises.

If you need help or advice regarding queries which fall outside this arrangement, please contact the Church of England’s National Safeguarding Team: [email protected], 020 7898 1778
