The privacy of all those who are connected in any way with Immanuel and St Andrew Church is important to us. However, we do need to hold and use some personal data, and the way we do that is governed by law. See the note below for more information.
Below are links to read or download our privacy notices which explain what data we may need to hold about you, what we do with it and what are your rights in respect of that data. As well as a General Privacy Notice there is a separate Privacy Notice for Role Holders for anyone who has a role in the church (such as PCC member or steward). Please read the one that applies to you. You can refer to the note below for guidance.
There is also a consent form which you can print, complete and sign. If you connsider yourself part of Immanuel and St Andrew Church in any way or would like to get information about us, and are over 13 years old, please complete the form, if you have not already done so, and return it to the Church. It can be handed to a steward at a Service or sent to the Church, addressed to "The Data Controller" at the address above.
Please note - you must be over 13 years of age in order to give consent. Do not complete the form if you are under 13.

The way we hold and use personal data ('process' is the legal term) is governed by law known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into effect in May 2018. There are a number of things Immanuel and St Andrew Church has to do to comply with GDPR, including issuing privacy notices and getting people to deliberately opt in, or give consent, if they wish to receive information from us.
So, for most members of the congregation and others having an interest in us, the legal basis for our using their personal data to communicate with them is generally achieved by their giving consent to our doing so. For those who have a role in the Church, however (see below for example of roles), it is essential that we hold some personal data about them (name and address, for example) and use it to communicate with them so that they can fulfil their role. The role gives us a legal basis for having and using their data without us needing consent. However, we still need their consent to communicate with them on matters unconnected with their role.
Examples of roles are clergy, other ministers, Churchwardens, Deanery Synod Representatives, PCC members, safeguarding officers, Junior Church leaders and helpers, those who read lessons or lead intercessions in Services, those who help with refreshments, stewards, welcomers and people employed by the PCC.
The consent form relates mainly to communication. There are other ways which may give us a legal basis to have and use your data - for example, if you have completed a Gift Aid declaration it gives us a legal basis to use your data to process your donation(s) and claim Gift Aid - but not to do anything else with it, like invite you to social events.
