Whilst we cannot eradicate risk on church activities, we can do our best be aware of potential issues.
The PCC has a Health and Safety team which seeks to develop awareness of possible risks in relation to church activities. The group is led by Dr Alison Martin. Alison has a background in this field through her work with BP.
