The Church of England Safeguarding Children Policy ‘Protecting all God’s Children’, has as its first principle: “We are committed to the Safeguarding, care and nurture of the children within our church community”.
Within its Safeguarding Adults Policy ‘Promoting a Safe Church’, The Church of England’s first principle is: “We are committed to the respectful pastoral ministry of all adults within the church community”.
The Diocese of Truro wholeheartedly endorses these principles and wishes to provide support, advice and information to all those in its parishes who give of their time – both paid and voluntarily – to work with vulnerable adults and children.
Here too at St Olaf's we take safeguarding seriously.
Ensuring that children and young people as well as adults are kept safe whilst in our care is an integral part of our church life. If you have any concerns about safeguarding please contact:

The land for the Hollabury Mission Hall, Poughill, was purchased on 10th November, 1908 with money (£120) provided by Maria Somes, from the Bude Land and Building Company Limited, and conveyed to Rev T.W. Lemon, the then incumbent of the Living of Poughill (St Olaf’s) “for the purpose of a site for the erection of a Mission Hall or Mission Church or Schools for the maintenance in perpetuity of Protestant and Evangelical Principles”. After the death of Rev Lemon in December 1919, the land and the building (which by this time had been erected) were passed to the new Trustees of the Living, the Church Association Trust (who had become a trustee of the Living of Poughill. Church Association Trust was renamed Church Society Trust in 1950.
Over the years the building has been used on and off for many activities, including Sunday services and children's meetings.
