Parochial Church Council

What is the Parochial Church Council (PCC)?

The running of our parish is the joint responsibility of the Rector and the Parochial Church Council (PCC), which is made up of the parish clergy and elected representatives from our congregation. As such, the PCC is our church’s governing body and also the board of trustees which oversees the church’s charitable works and money.

The powers and duties of PCCs are laid down in law. Key duties are to co-operate with the Rector in promoting the mission of the Church in the parish and to be responsible for the financial affairs of the church and the care and maintenance of the church fabric and its contents. It also has a voice in the forms of service used by the church and may make representations to the bishop and deanery synod on matters affecting the welfare and pastoral care of the parish.

How does the PCC carry out its work?

Our PCC meets regularly to discuss matters about the life of the Church. Apart from finance and buildings, it considers the Church's mission and involvement in the community, support of missionary work, the social life and activities of the Church, the spiritual development of the congregation and our worship.

The PCC is chaired by the Rector.

Anyone who is over 16 years old and has been on the electoral roll for over 6 months can stand for election.

Each meeting is minuted. A copy of the minutes (which may be redacted to remove sensitive/confidential information) can be requested from our Parish Administrator Carole Carter.
