Mailing Lists and Data Protection
We hold various different lists including a directory of the church family, and email mailing lists for prayer requests and admin.

These lists are all held in accordance with the General Data Protection Legislation (GDPR) that was implemented in 2018. It gives you rights and control over the use of your data. Below is an outline of these rights (the document may also be downloaded here)
