Hope Church is under the charity governance and oversight of St. James's Church, Ryde. This oversight includes our safeguarding.

St. James’s Church, Ryde is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone without our church community.

In all these principles we will follow legislation, guidance and recognised good practice.


If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or is at risk, do not hesitate to contact our safeguarding officer listed below for advice and support.


As Christians we are called to recognise and respect the individuality and dignity of all people. We have a special responsibility to safeguard both the children and young people entrusted to our care, and the vulnerable adults who are part of our church community. Our work with children, young people and adults takes many forms and it is the responsibility of each of us to prevent abuse in all forms: physical, emotional, sexual or neglect, and to report any such abuse that we discover or suspect. We will work with all individuals regardless of race, disability, gender, culture or creed and ensure that we are constantly mindful of their welfare.


Our safeguarding policies and procedures are based on those from the safeguarding agency "Thirtyone:eight". Details can be found here:




Any questions, allegations or suspicions must be directed immediately to the St. James’s Church Safeguarding Officer (or deputy):


Safeguarding Lead: Ashleigh

Safeguarding Deputy: Matt


Direct phone numbers for Ashleigh and Matt are available through ChurchSuite.

Where a child or adult is at imminent risk, call the police immediately on 999.
