Parochial Church Council (PCC)

Our PCC is made up of the Rector, who as the incumbent is the chairman, Churchwardens and a number of representatives of the congregation nominated, seconded and then elected at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.

It also has a voice in the forms of service used by the church as well as matters affecting the welfare and pastoral care of the parish.

What does the PCC do?

  • The PCC works with the Rector to promote within the parish the whole mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical.
  • It meets six times a year, is responsible for the financial affairs of the church and the care and maintenance of the church fabric and its contents.
