PCC

The PCC are 9 elected representatives from the church electoral roll.  1/3 of the PCC are elected each year at the Annual meeting (APCM) to serve for 3 years.  They act as charitable trustees and custodians of the church finances.  They meet around 6 times a year together with the clergy & churchwardens to set direction, agree expenditure, review policy & practice, take a lead on safeguarding, and work together to promote the mission of the church in the parish.
