Dear Friends

Following the guidance issued by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York yesterday in the light of the Covid-19 crisis and the Bishop of London, all church buildings in London have been closed until further notice to reduce the spread of the virus.

This is clearly a very sad step to be forced to take as corporate worship at St Stephen Walbrook and working to project the gospel into our City are great joys and privileges for so many of us.

These unexpected, strange times however present opportunities for us to draw together and express ourselves as members of the Body of Christ in new and different ways. The situation is fluid and guidance may change, however the current proposals for ministry and interaction are set out https://ststephenwalbrook.net/news/.

The parish of St Stephen Walbrook affirms the Church of England’s ‘Whole Church’ approach to safeguarding, and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all those who are vulnerable (children, young people and vulnerable adults). We expect all of our officers and staff, and those who use our premises, to share this commitment.

Meg is the Safeguarding Officer at St Stephen Walbrook and is the first person to contact if you have any concerns around the welfare of a child, young person or adult at risk. She can be contacted via the parish office by email at office@ststephenwalbrook.net or by telephone at 0207 626 9000.

Detailed documentation on our Safeguarding policy can be viewed via the Resources tab.
