Parochial Church Council

WHAT WE DO. We are responsible for the financial affairs of the church parish and the maintenance of its assets, including St.Michael & All Angels Church. We also assist the clergy in the management of Church affairs and promoting the mission of the Church.

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) plays a vital role within the parish, acting solely to promote its charitable function  and where its members are a fiduciary role – rather like a trustee. Each Council member is required to act in a way that is consistent with the aims of the PCC and not to allow their own personal interests to come into conflict.

Everyone has a safeguarding responsibility and it is important that we create an environment in which everyone feels safe and is safe. The welfare of vulnerable people – child or adult – is paramount, no matter how uncomfortable that may be because only in that way, can we create a church that is safe for everyone.
