St Mary's Church


We are committed to ensuring that St Mary’s Churchgate Street, Old Harlow, is a safe place for all.

The Parochial Church Council of St Mary's Churchgate Street, Old Harlow has adopted the House of Bishops' Promoting a Safer Church Safeguarding Policy Statement 

Our Parish Safeguarding Representative is Lesley Perry.

They can be contacted at church or by email.

We recruit all voluntary and paid roles within the life of our church community following the Church of England’s safer recruitment best practice guidelines.

As part of the recruitment process all roles will have a job description and there will be an application to complete with references, a self-disclosure form and an interview.  All roles will require safeguarding training to be completed and some roles will require a DBS check to the appropriate level.

St Mary’s Churchgate Street, Old Harlow, is part of the Diocese of Chelmsford. For further information about Safeguarding in the Diocese of Chelmsford, their Safeguarding Team and Safeguarding Contacts  click here
