Target churches for 2024


On Sunday 17 November 2024 join thousands of churches from diverse backgrounds and traditions across the UK to shout about safeguarding and help protect vulnerable people.

This initiative, spearheaded by Thirtyone:eight invites communities to come together to reflect on their own safeguarding journey, and to highlight and celebrate all the good work that is being done by so many behind the scenes.

What's the big deal?

Defending the rights of vulnerable people is integral to Christian faith and teaching. Sadly, the church hasn’t always done this well. But we have a chance to change that. We are already seeing many churches take the responsibility to safeguard those in their care seriously. That's why our theme this year is - let's talk about it!


Last year over 4,000 churches took part in Safeguarding Sunday, with an estimated reach of 240,000 people. This year, with your help, we can make an even greater impact to vulnerable people across the UK.
