Safeguarding within our Parish
Lickey and Blackwell Parochial Church Council attach great importance to the care and protection of our children, young people and vulnerable adults. We recognise our responsibility to guard against the possible abuse of children and young people and affirm these principles by the adoption of our parish policy “Privileges and Responsibilities of Working with Children” which is collated from and in accordance with the House of Bishops safeguarding policy, Birmingham Diocesan Policy on Child Protection from Drug Abuse and ‘Gods Children’ – Our Diocese, the policy for the Diocese of Birmingham to protect and promote the interest of children and young people.
If you have any concerns regarding safeguarding please contact our Parish Safeguarding Co-ordinator, Emma Armstrong on 07981 477423.

Its for school aged children from 7 yrs onwards.
We know a big age group but we are more like a little family. We get together to study the bible in ways that are accessible to all of us including food, games as well as more reflective styles of learning. The older young people are a wonderful example to our growing children, and the children remind the young people of how God loves to play.

Once a month we have a service at Holy Trinity where everyone is all together! Whatever age you are you will be able to engage with God through worship, prayer and bible study, but all with a twist and a fresh approach to being church together.
There are no children’s groups on Engage Sundays and the service lasts for 45 minutes followed by homemade cakes and real coffee giving us all a chance to chat and catch up with each other.

Tiny Church is a group that meets in Holy Trinity on Wednesday mornings. We welcome all babies and toddlers, provided they bring their carers along too!! Come along and enjoy fun and fellowship together where tiny people have the opportunity to meet and play together, enjoy a snack, and have lots of fun, while the adults can chat over a cup of coffee or tea and cake. A chance to share tips and make friends.
The session ends with a simple story and lively singing with instruments where we all learn just how much our God loves us. There is a small charge for this group.
