Parish Register

It is most important for the priest to have an accurate and up-to-date parish register. If you would like to be added to our Parish Register, please fill in a consent form available at the back of the church or upon request and return signed to our Parish Office. The consent form will enable you to grant consent to all the purposes; one of the purposes or none of the purposes. Where you do not grant consent we will not be able to use your personal data; (so for example we may not be able to let you know about forthcoming services and events); except in certain limited situations, such as where required to do so by law or to protect members of the public from serious harm. You can find out more about how we use your data from our “Privacy Notice” which is available from http://www.dioceseofnottingham.uk/

Security

The Parish takes security very seriously and recognises the importance of remaining vigilant at all times. The Parish has introduced a range of measures to manage the risks in accordance with its Security Policy. These are aimed at delaying, deterring and detecting a breach of security but, in the event, to respond effectively to mitigate the consequences.

The Parish remains in contact with the local police to maintain awareness of current threat levels so as to ensure that the policy and procedures remain relevant and up to date.

Parishioners are advised to make themselves familiar with the following documents:
