Parochial Church Council (PCC)

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is the executive committee of a Church of England parish and consists of Clergy and Churchwardens of the parish, together with representatives of the laity.

The PCC is a corporate charitable body, and legally, it is responsible for the financial affairs of the parish and the maintenance of its assets. It also assists the clergy in the management of church affairs in the parish, and promoting the mission of the church.

The purpose of our PCC is specifically to promote the whole mission of the church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical.

The council is made up of Clergy (currently the Vicar and the Curate) and elected lay members. The constitution allows for the election of eight lay members in addition to up to three Deanery Representatives. Churchwardens (up to four) also automatically serve on the PCC.

The PCC meets between 8 and 10 times each year to deal with these matters.
