The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Act and the changes it brings from May 25 will affect most parishes and all clergy. It cannot be ignored!

With that in mind, the Revd Mark James of Portsmouth Diocese, who is a data protection expert and vicar, will deliver two-hour training sessions designed for parishes and clergy across four locations in the Diocese of Truro.

The sessions are FREE and will give an overview of the new legislation, what it means for parishes, and most importantly provide a simple guide to what parishes and clergy need to do to ensure they are compliant with the law.

Please note that is a new date for the training that was originally scheduled for the 19th March 2018 but had to be postponed due to snow.

GDPR is a law to strengthen data protection for people in the UK and Europe. It will apply in the UK from 25 May 2018. Is your church ready?

Parishes must comply with its requirements, just like any other charity or organisation.
