-Sanitise before and after the service
-We require your contact details for Track & Trace
-At the end of the service leave when told

St Stephen’s is the Parish Church serving the village of Moulton, in Cheshire.

Right in the heart of the village, we try to be a warm welcoming place where, you can be yourself, worshipping God, celebrating the happy moments in life, and being comforted in the sad ones.

We have a range of services, from a traditional Eucharist three times a month (once in the evening), to a very informal family service.

We’re open for anyone to come along, whether you live in the village or not; whether you have a strong faith, or are exploring; by yourself or with friends and family.

We take extremely serious, our obligation and duty to protect all. To this end, we have adopted the national Church of  Englands robust procedures and guidelines. These can found at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding If you have any safeguarding concerns or issues of a safeguarding matter then you can find useful contact information at www.chester.anglican.org/social-responsibility/safeguarding

St Stephen’s Moulton participation in Church of England Past Case Review

“All parishes are required to participate in a Past Cases Review, commissioned by the Church of England. PCR2, as it is known nationally, is part of the Church’s ongoing scrutiny of its handling of past and current safeguarding cases. An Independent Reviewer will be looking at files relating to church officers in this parish, both lay and ordained, past and present. 

“Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser. However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the Church, a dedicated telephone helpline – 0800 80 20 20 – operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC, has been set up.”
