As the people of City Gate Church Brighton, we believe each person has a value and dignity which comes directly from being created in God’s own image. As such we take seriously our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults we come into contact with: to promote wellbeing and to protect from harm. The need for guidelines and procedures is important to ensure that this is done with understanding and clarity.
We want to ensure everyone is kept safe when they are attending any event run by City Gate Church.
Further information about Safeguarding at City Gate Church can be accessed below.

During this current season of change due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our church community will be meeting via online gatherings, discipleship and small groups. With emotional health being an area of concern during this time our safeguarding team will continue to be on hand to support the City Gate Church Community.
