We respect everyone that visits our website and we do not take the issue of privacy lightly. Your Personal data consists of any information about you that allows you to be identified from such data, including for example a name, photographs, videos, email address, or address.  The processing of personal data is governed by the Data Protection Bill/Act 2017 the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”) and other legislation relating to personal data and rights such as the Human Rights Act 1998.


This Privacy Notice is provided to you by RCCG Sunday School UK which encompasses the teachings and training of the Redeemed Christian Church of God UK. We are responsible to you for how we process your data.

This Privacy Notice is sent to you by RCCG Sunday School UK and In the rest of this Privacy Notice, we use the word “we” to refer to ourselves.


We will process some or all of the following where necessary to perform our tasks:

  • Names, titles, and aliases;
  • Contact details such as telephone numbers, addresses, and email addresses;
  • Photographs and videos;
  • Where they are relevant to our activities, or where you provide them to us, we may process demographic information such as gender, age, date of birth, marital status, nationality, family composition, and dependants;
  • Where you make donations or pay for activities such as use of a venue, financial identifiers such as bank account numbers, payment card numbers and payment/transaction identifiers;
  • Non-financial identifiers such as vehicle registration numbers;
  • The data we process is likely to constitute sensitive personal data because, as a ministry, the fact that we process your data at all may be suggestive of your religious beliefs.


We will comply with our legal obligations:

  • to keep personal data up to date;
  • to store and destroy it securely;
  • to not collect or retain excessive amounts of data;
  • to keep personal data secure, and to protect personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and to ensure that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

We use your personal data, for some or all of the following purposes:

  • To enable us to meet all legal and statutory obligations;
  • To carry out comprehensive safeguarding procedures (including due diligence and complaints handling) in accordance with best safeguarding practice from time to time with the aim of ensuring that all children and adults-at-risk are provided with safe environments whenever we have our events;
  • To deliver the RCCG Sunday School mission to the RCCG and greater Christian community, and to carry out other voluntary or charitable activities for the benefit of the public.
  • So as to keep a record of RCCG Sunday School UK membership;

  • To notify you of changes to our services and events;
  • To send you communications of our programmes and other information which you have requested that may be of interest to you. These may include newsletters, information about campaigns, appeals and other fundraising activities;


Most of our data is processed because it is necessary for our legitimate interests, or the legitimate interests of a third party, such as HMRC for gift aid claims, which requires us to keep gift aid declarations for six years plus the current year. An example of this would be processing your data in connection with the use of RCCG Sunday School UK facilities or attendance at a RCCG Sunday School UK.  Religious organisations are also permitted to process information about your religious beliefs to administer membership or contact details. Where your information is used other than in accordance with one of these legal bases, we will first obtain your consent to that use.


Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential. It will only be shared with third parties where it is absolutely necessary for the performance of our tasks or where you first give us your prior consent. It is likely that we will need to share your data with some or all of the following (but only where necessary):




We will keep some records permanently if we are legally required to do so.  We may keep some other records for an extended period of time. For example, it is current best practice to keep financial records for a minimum period of 7 years for the Charities Act and HMRC purposes. In general, we will endeavour to keep data only for as long as we need it. This means that we may delete it when it is no longer needed.
