Everyone at St Mary Magdalene Church, Geddington has a responsibility to keep our children, young people and adults safe and protected. We follow the 6 safeguarding commitments of the Church of England. Find out more here
We have two Parish Safeguarding Officers, Penny Griffin and Janaa Batchelor whose responsibility includes ensuring that everyone who has significant contact with children or vulnerable adults is properly checked and monitored. Penny and Jana can provide advice and guidance on any safeguarding related matter.
We work closely with the police and social services when specific concerns about children or vulnerable adults arise. Our Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, Beverly Huff, is available to support and advise parishes and individuals.

UPDATE: Covid Update
To ensure the churches of St Mary Magdalene, Geddington and St Mary the Virgin, Weekley remain as accessible to all members of our community, including those who are clinically extremely vulnerable to covid-19, we are now encouraging all visitors to our churches to continue to observe the following guidance:
Track and Trace will continue to be available either through the QR code or using paper to sign in. At our main Sunday services, the choir will sing unmasked, and we will go outside to sing our final hymn (weather permitting). Making church onsite a COVID-secure environment is our top priority, and one which will be regularly reviewed.
We will continue to worship in person and online, where we look forward to welcoming you to our services via Zoom and Facebook. A midweek Holy Communion will also continue online through Zoom at 10am each Friday. To access all this visit www.facebook.com/StMaryMagdalenechurch.
Over the last 18 months the church has continued to be active in our community. Even though we were apart we were still able to worship together. The challenge remains to discover different ways of being the Body of Christ together. The ability of many to worship online, of others to be in touch with each other over the telephone, and all of us to pray wherever we are, can continue to feed and strengthen our community.
“Look out for one another’s interests, not just for your own. The attitude you should have is the one that Christ Jesus had.” Philippians 2:4-5

Priest in Charge
