Church and Circuit Activity and Event planning

The Safeguarding Policy for the Methodist church specifically section 6.6 sets out guidance for church sponsored activities and events. When planning any event with children or adults it is important to consider the guidance within the Methodist Safeguarding Policy, Procedures and Guidance and apply this at all stages of the event planning process.

The DST have developed a model template for use when planning an event or activity and needing to complete a risk assessment. This document provides:

  • a checklist and templates to assist the planning of an event or activity
  • a risk assessment template for an activity or event

It is important that all sections are completed, even if they may not seem relevant. That said, for smaller events there may be sections that are not applicable – if this is the case, please mark them as such. We have also provided a risk asessment template for the smaller events such as coffee mornings.
