Parish Safeguarding Officer Needed
Safeguarding is at the heart of the Christian faith and requires action by all churches to promote a safer culture.  St Helen’s and St Peter’s in Wheathampstead is looking for a replacement Safeguarding Officer to ensure the continued care and protection of all children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in our church activities.  This is a voluntary position which will involve liaising with the Rector, Churchwardens and providing a bi-annual report to the PCC.

Suitable candidates will need experience of working with vulnerable groups and should be willing to have an enhanced DBS check, undertake relevant safeguarding training and provide references.  Please email Helen Caldwell, to request a copy of the job description or a copy of your CV to or call 07974 762997 to discuss the position. Deadline for applications is 31st October 2022.

Join us on Sunday 2nd October for Harvest Celebrations!
We offer a choice of 2 services – our main Harvest service will be at 10am or a special family-friendly Harvest Kid’s Worship at 3:30pm.

This year, we are supporting the Bishop’s Annual Harvest Appeal for the lives of people in Mozambique who have been traumatised and displaced by conflict. Having fled to safety, life still isn’t easy, and many are losing hope. Your support will help on-the-ground, local church partners to reach the most vulnerable; helping to change lives, transform communities and show God’s love where it is needed most.
