Sadly the issue of child abuse (and the abuse of vulnerable adults) has become a major concern in Irish society. To make matters worse the Church has been heavily implicated in this and many people are concerned about how safe it is to bring their children to Church. While we can never give a cast-iron guarantee that nothing untoward will ever happen, we take the matter very seriously and Abbey is obliged to function under national Child Protection legislation and under the Presbyterian Church in Ireland guidelines – ‘Taking Care’.
