Welcome to the website of:
18th Sunday of the Year (Trinity 8)
Coronavirus Update! (Valid from the 31st of July)
Public worship can now resume as long as we adhere to various Government and Church of England guidelines. Alleluia!
The latest advice from the Government is that, from Sunday the 9th of August worshippers must wear a mask if they are able. Until then you are strongly advised to wear a mask.
There will be a 9.00 am Mass at the church of The Good Shepherd, Mile Oak and an 11.00 am Mass at the church of S. Nicolas, Portslade. There is no cap on numbers as long as those present can preserve social distancing. I am afraid that singing is not yet allowed and there are various other restricitions that I will explain before each service
I will still be live-streaming the 9.00 am Sunday mass for all those who cannot yet attend church.
As members of this PCC we are committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of all our members.
We recognise that safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.
We are committed to implementing all safeguarding policies and practice guidance issued by the House of Bishops
We will carefully select and train all those who work or volunteer in positions of trust. We will use the Disclosure and Barring Service, amongst other tools, to check the background of each person.
We will respond, without delay, to every concern made that a person for whom we are responsible may have been harmed.
We will co-operate fully with statutory agencies during any investigation concerning a member of the church community.
We will seek to ensure that anyone for whom we have pastoral responsibility who has suffered abuse is offered support that meets their needs.
We will respond appropriately to those who have committed sexual offences who wish to join our fellowship, following House of Bishop's guidance and the advice of the Safeguarding Team.
We will review this policy annually and as part of this process will ensure that all our procedures, particularly in relation to the Disclosure and Barring Service, are up to date.
Our Safeguarding Representative is Jennie Davies. Please contact Jennie by clicking HERE!
