Charitable Giving

To help encourage the children in the habit of regularly donating to charity, we will be collecting loose change at our JAM meeting, for our chosen charity: Children in Need. Thank you for any donations of coins your youngsters make - helping to support others is important, it develops compassion and hopefully we will see over time, that even a little can make a difference.

Video Conferencing during COVID-19

Safeguarding 

Marden Church had hoped to set up an on-line group to reach our JAM members and Kathy Young and Judy Noakes had started to liaise about how to set this at the commencement of the lock-down. 

Guidelines were then issued by the Church of England on the 30th March 2020 and passed on to us by the Diocese on 1st April 2020, advising that whilst this is an exciting opportunity that would not have been available ten years ago, there are potential safeguarding challenges that must be managed.  

If you wish to read the guidelines they are available here:

(the link to Guidance for dioceses and churches for the safe use of video-calling with young people can be found towards the bottom of the page). 

In the light of this information, and in our current interregnum status, we feel that safeguarding everyone, especially our young people is of paramount importance and we will therefore be unable to proceed with this initiative 

This decision has been endorsed by our Safeguarding Officer, Gay Adam and Church Warden, Carol Walker.
