- FurnaceWe now have Furnace Home and Away! Once a month we will continue to meet at Godmanchester Primary School (Away) and on the other Sundays we will be at Godmanchester Baptist Church Centre (Home). Furnace is a chance to find out a bit more about Christianity and how to live as a Christian with other young people. Furnace Home will meet in the church centre during the Sunday morning celebration services for age specific teaching. At Furnace Away at the school on 18 September, 16 October, 20 November and 11 December we’ll be looking at various Bible characters and their journeys. All Furnace events are for young people who are in school year 7-9.
- SafeguardingChildren and young people are vital part of our church family. They have much to give as well as to receive. As we nurture them in worship, learning and in community life, we listen to them and respect the wishes and feelings of children and young people. We take their safety very seriously, and provide training and support for those working with them. For the protection of children, young people and leaders, we have a child protection policy implemented in accordance with the latest advice from our child protection agency and current legislation. All leaders and helpers hold enhanced disclosure certificates from the Criminal Records Bureau. We also take up two references for each of them, interview them about their role, and provide them with training in Child Protection issues. Each group of children and young people is led by two adults, and we carefully ensure that activities are safely run. We keep an accurate register of who is present, as well as records such as names, addresses, dates of birth, and special medical information (for example, allergies suffered or regular medication required). The church is registered under the Data Protection Act.
Furnace runs during our main Sunday Morning Celebration at the Church Centre. Furnace offers a chance for those in school years 7 – 9 to find out about Christianity and how to live as a Christian.
It uses a range of different creative ways to help the young people learn about God and how to live their lives, as well as allows opportunities for them to ask questions and to have fun whilst doing so.
Everyone is welcome, so why not come along
