Welcome!

Sadly, all church services have had to be suspended, following advice from the Church of England. 
Please do see our contacts page and get in touch with us - especially if you would like to discuss pastoral needs. We will be happy to help as best we can at this difficult time.



Sadly, owing to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, many events will now have to be cancelled.
If you are unsure about anything, or would like to keep in contact with the church, please e-mail selstonwithwestwood@gmail.com


The Parish of Selston with Westwood takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England's robust proceedures and guidelines for safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults.
You can find out more about the national policies and proceedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding.

The Church of England is undertaking a second review of files held in all dioceses and parishes to ensure that churches and church related activities are as safe as possible for children and vulnerable adults.
Known as the Past Cases Review 2, it aims to identify both good practice and institutional failings in the way that allegations of abuse have been handled in the past. It will also provide recommendations on how practice and processes can be improved.
Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information, or make any disclosures regarding church related abuse, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (DSA) on 01636 817200 or email safeguarding@southwell.anglican.org
However, recognising that for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the church may not feel comfortable, a dedicated telephone helpline – 0800 80 20 20 – operated independently from the church, by the NSPCC, has been set up. Anyone can use the helpline to provide information or to raise concerns regarding abuse within the Church of England; whether they are reporting issues relating to children, adults or seeking to whistle blow about poor safeguarding practice.
