The Annual Meeting
On May 23rd 2023 we gathered to: review the past twelve months; elect Churchwardens and new Parish Church Council (PCC) members and, this year, Deanery Synod Representatives; to hear reports and ask questions; and to look to the year ahead.
The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is the executive committee of the Parish and consists of clergy and churchwardens, together with representatives of the laity.
Legally the council is responsible for the financial affairs of the parish and the maintenance of its assets, such as churches and church halls, and for promoting the mission of the church.
The PCC is directly involved in discerning the church’s priorities for mission and ministry - and in supporting and monitoring the achievement of those goals.
More detail about the work and the responsibilities of the PCC is provided in the following documents:
