If you would like to be added to the Electoral Roll, please complete the application form below.
The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is the elected body that works closely with the clergy team and wardens in enabling the church to play its part in God’s mission in the world. The primary role of the PCC is to help promote the mission of the church, including pastoral, social, evangelistic and ecumenical. They are consulted about major changes within the church and are vital in overseeing the use of church funds and the care and maintenance of the church buildings and contents. The PCC has legal status, is registered with the Charity Commissioners and follows the Church Representation Rules (established in 1969 with an amended addition published in 2020).
The PCC meets 6 times a year and is made up of the clergy, church wardens and lay representatives of the church who are elected at the annual parochial church meeting (typically held in April) by members of the parish who are on the parish electoral roll. To be elected onto the PCC, nominees must be at least sixteen years of age, an actual communicant and on the electoral roll of this parish for at least six months. Proposers and seconders must also be on the parish electoral roll.
There are 5 local three year PCC posts & 7 three year Deanery post vacancies. If you would like to nominate someone to be a member of the Deanery Synod or Parochial Church Council, please use the form below and return to the church office by Wednesday 19th April. The two church warden vacancies will also formally be elected/re-elected at the meeting.
If you have any questions, please e-mail or call the Church Office.
