Parochial Church Council (PCC)

The PCC, or Parochial Church Council, is a corporate body with charitable status. It comprises both clergy and lay (i.e. not clergy!) members of the church, and therefore has both those elected by members of the Church Electoral Roll and others who sit on the PCC by virtue of a particular office they hold within the church. Together they are responsible for the overall wellbeing, practical as well as spiritual, of our church, our church members and the church buildings. It is responsible for all matters of general concern and importance to the parish, including deciding how funds are spent. The PCC also has a duty to promote the mission of the church within the wider community. 

The PCC has Officer roles – a Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary. These are usually elected to office at its first meeting after the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM).

The minutes from the last PCC meeting are on the noticeboard in the entrance to church for anyone to read and respond to. Approved minutes from recent PCC meetings are also available below (but there will be a timelag because they are not approved until the next meeting i.e. minutes for the May meeting are not approved until the next meeting in July). Please talk to a PCC member if you have any queries.

  • Revd Rob Gladstone (Vicar, Chair)
