New appointments:
Some recent good news for the Parish of Stockport and Brinnington, is the announcement of the appointment of the Revd Jessica Piper to the role of Associate Minister in the parish, subject to all legal formalities being completed.  She will begin ministry in the Parish over the Summer and will lead work with children, families and schools across the parish.

The Rector of Stockport and Brinnington, the Revd Lynne Cullens, said “We are hugely excited at the prospect of Revd Jess joining our ministry team, alongside Marie Flint as Curate, and to building on the significant progress made within our church and the wider community over the past year.  We will be keeping Revd Jess and Marie in our prayers over the coming weeks as they prepare to take on their new roles with us”.   

The Parish has a YouTube channel - Stockport Parish PewTube - via which Jess will introduce herself to the wider parish shortly’.  [6/4/20]

safeguarding

"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 Safety 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."



The parish of Stockport & Brinnington have  adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. 
You can find out more about the national policies and procedures 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
