Keep your Safeguarding training up-to-date

The Church of England has introduced a new modular safeguarding training and development programme for use by Dioceses, Cathedrals and Theological Education Institutions.

The programme builds core, generic safeguarding training according to role and through a person's ministry path.

The Church of England Safeguarding Training modules consist of Core Modules; Basic Awareness (C0), Foundation (C1) and Leandership (C2) and Specialist Modules; Safer Recruitment (S1) and Responding to Domestic Violence (S3). (some other modules may also apply on occasion)

The level of the Core Module to which you are expected to undertake will determine which other modules you will need to have previously undertaken. i.e.

  • C0 - if you are only required to undertake a C0 module, you will only need to repeat that training once every three years.
  • C1 - if you are required to undertake a C1 module, you must also have completed a C0 module at least once. You then need to repeat the C1 training every three years.
  • C2 - anyone required to undertake this module must ensure they have also completed a Basic Awareness (C0) and Foundation (C1) module at least once. The C2 module must then be repeated every three years.

Review your training requirement

Help ensure you and your church colleagues are up-to-date with Safeguarding Training.

Thy Kingdom Come 2021

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.

In 2021, Thy Kingdom Come runs from 12th May - to 23rd May.

What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.

Since its start in May 2016, just three and a half years ago, God has grown Thy Kingdom Come from a dream of possibility into a movement. Christians from 172 countries have taken part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’, so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.

This praying together has been across our diversity and differences as every person, household and church are encouraged to pray in their own way. Whilst an astonishing 92% of people said they were praying for family and friends to come to faith in Jesus, and 40% of those taking part in 2019 did so for the first time, we recognise there is much more we can do together to help Thy Kingdom Come be fully in the lifeblood of the Church.

During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:

  • Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus
  • Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness

Whether you have joined in ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ before or not, we invite you to take part – along with churches from over 65 different denominations in 172 countries around the world.
