The Parochial Church Council is the governing body of a parish church. It is also a charity, as any PCC with an annual income of more than £100,000 (like St. John’s) must be registered with the Charity Commissioners. The PCC is a team made up of members of clergy and lay members of the church. Together they are responsible for the overall wellbeing, practical as well as spiritual, of their church, the church members, and the church buildings. The PCC also has a duty to promote the mission of the church within the wider community. For more information on what the PCC does, take a look at this booklet .
Members of the PCC are elected each year at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (usually held in April). Once elected, they usually serve a minimum of three years and may stand for re-election at the end of that term. If you would like to be nominated for the PCC, please contact the Church Office.
