Church Policy & Risk Assesments

Image013

At GHBC we try to follow best practice in the way we conduct our business and events to allow everyone to develop to the best of their abilities while keeping safe. To this end we have written and follow policies in a number of key areas as well as some guidance notes, we provide them here for your reference. Our policies are generally reviewed at the church members meeting each year, where applicable they are based on foundation documents provided by the Baptist Union.

We also assess risk around all our activities. Folloing the pandemic we decided to make public risk assessments applicable to the activities we have undertaken to support ourselves and the community around us. These assessments are given at the end of the list below.
