At Great Amwell with St Margarets and Stanstead Abbots we recognise that the few who are determined to harm children or adults, deliberately seek out groups or organisations where they can meet children or other vulnerable people. The Church is particularly vulnerable to these people. We as a Benefice are committed to creating and maintaining a safeguarding culture that will discourage them from becoming involved for the wrong reasons, and make it difficult for them to harm or abuse children or adults if they do.

Although safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone here at The 3 Churches Benefice; our Safeguarding Officers can be contacted about any safeguarding matter. The Safeguarding Officers are as follows:

  • St John the Baptist, Great Amwell with St Mary the Virgin, St Margarets

You can also contact our Benefice Office on 01920 870115 or leave an email using or via the contact form.
