Child Protection

Taking Care is the initiative introduced by the Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI) to ensure that the church does all it can to keep young people safe while involved in church-based activities. But we also want our volunteers to be a “listening ear” for any young people who may be worried about anything in their life and need someone to turn to.   The principle behind Taking Care is that next to proclaiming God’s Word and the love of Christ, nothing could be more important than keeping our children and young people safe. Gilnahirk Church will implement the Taking Care guidelines. As part of safe recruitment procedures, we will ensure that appropriate vetting is carried out and that all volunteers will attend a PCI presentation on child protection. The church has clear guidelines on how adults and young people should behave through their codes of conduct and how to respond to a concern through its reporting procedures. 


If, as a parent, volunteer or young person, you have any concerns or want more information, please contact the designated officers through the church office at Gilnahirk Church.
