God's whispers

"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly. The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good. The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit. A fool spurns a parent’s discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence. The house of the righteous contains great treasure, but the income of the wicked brings ruin. The lips of the wise spread knowledge, but the hearts of fools are not upright. The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him. The Lord detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue righteousness. Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die."

Safe Guarding Trust

Safe Guarding Policy Statement

Children are a fundamental part of our Church family and we embrace 'Safeguarding Trust' (the Church of Irelands Child protection policy) as a way of creating and maintaining a safe environment where all our children are protected from any type of abuse and feel happy and safe in exploring faith and sharing life as we learn to follow Jesus together. It is important that they understand how to raise any concerns they may have with members in our community.

In putting in place and following all of the policies and practices of 'Safeguarding Trust' we are also ensuring that all of our members involved in children’s ministry are appointed and trained to operate within good practice frameworks and are protected from unfounded allegations. As a Church we are committed to reviewing our policy on a regular basis.

Our panel members responsible for implementing 'Safeguarding Trust' are:

  • Rev. Trevor Stevenson
  • Margaret Scargill
  • Stephen Gardiner

In the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough, Olive Good (Regulator for Safeguarding Trust) is responsible for the training of leaders and panel members.

All of our groups for children and young people comply with the Safeguarding Trust: The Church of Ireland’s Child Protection Policy.
