The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is made up of elected members, officials and ministers.  Its purpose is (amongst other things):

co-operation with the minister in promoting in the ecclesiastical parish, the whole mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical.

Parochial Church Councils (Powers) Measure 1956 (see here for more details)

From April 2017 our members are:

  • Revd Ben Green (Vicar & Chair)

At our annual meeting in April 2017 we decided to reduce the number of elected representatives from nine to six, to make the PCC a more appropriate size for our church.

We don’t have a permanent secretary, so minute-taking is shared between Carol, Janet and Steve.
