Privacy Notices – explain how we manage your personal data

In May 2018 new data protection laws take effect, giving individuals more rights and protection about how their personal data is used by the parish. Both of our privacy notices reflect these changes, which you can find here:

General Privacy Notice
for non-role holders, eg. church goers, suppliers

Privacy Notice for Role Holders
for staff, church wardens, PCC, event organisers, parish volunteers, Sunday School volunteers

note – role holders may well have a dual role, so please refer to both privacy notices as necessary.

photography/filming at church & parish events

To further the work of the parish, we may use photos/film from church and parish events to promote our parish community and its activities, eg. on our website; from time to time we may share photos/film with trusted 3rd parties.

photos & privacy
We provide an ‘opt-out’ at all photographed/filmed events.
We do not list names alongside photos.

announcements about photography/filming
We will always announce photography/filming at an event or service by posting notices in visible locations and ensuring that there is a briefing at the start of the event, eg. a church service, the Summer Fete, the Speaker Programme events, so that attendees are aware that photography/filming is taking place.

if you do not want to be photographed/filmed…
Please follow the clear instruction for ‘opt-out’ at a particular event (eg. by wearing a visible sticker if provided; recording your name with the organizer; sitting in the non-photo area of the event).  Your privacy is important to us, so please speak to an organizer/staff member at the event if you have any questions.

children under 13 years
As a parent/carer of a child under 13 years, you are responsible for allowing your child to be photographed/filmed.  Please follow our instruction about photos/filming as regards your child.


prayer requests & privacy

Please be mindful about sensitive personal data.

Ask permission – does the person know they are being prayed for, would they mind?

Privacy – it’s important not to make the detail of the prayer request public, eg. the nature of illness, unless specifically requested.

Thank you for your consideration.
