Pneuma Church is a family on a mission to create spaces for people to encounter God and to do that we curate environments that nurture and model a culture that shapes who we are as a family, church community and organisation. This includes taking our responsibility to safeguarding extremely seriously so that we model healthy relationships and prioritise the wellbeing of everyone we meet.

At Pneuma Church everyone is invited to find a place to belong and contribute and as such, we promote a culture of safeguarding awareness throughout all our activities. This culture of openness and trust allows people to ask questions and have open and honest conversations. Our goal is ultimately to create safe, thriving spaces for children, young people and adults from all walks of life.

We value the expertise, support and advice of other organisations both statutory and otherwise. We are a member of thirtyone:eight to ensure independent scrutiny of our decision making.

All staff, volunteers, pastors and trustees at Pneuma Church are trained and supported to respond to any safeguarding concerns sensitively, appropriately and promptly with a safeguarding team available for consultation whenever it is needed by anyone interacting with Pneuma Church.

The Pneuma Church safeguarding team is your first point of contact for any questions, concerns or information relating to safeguarding. They can be reached by emailing We are always willing to listen and eager to learn, however, if for any reason you do not feel comfortable talking to the Pneuma safeguarding team, we would encourage you to approach thirtyone:eight.
