Parochial Church Council


  • The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is the governing body of a Church of England Parish.
  • Our principal duty and function as a PCC, along with the Parish Priest is, to promote the mission of The Church of England in our parish.  
  • We are responsible for the financial affairs of the church and the care and maintenance of the fabric and its content. 
  • We have a voice in the forms and styles of services used.
  • Members are elected annually at the Annual Parish Meeting, which is usually held in April. 
  • The PCC meets on the 3rd Tuesday of alternate months, starting in January.  Minutes of past meetings can be seen in a folder at the back of the church.
