The PCC is elected annually at the Annual Parochial Meeting  which usually takes place in April.  To be elected on to the PCC, a person needs to be on the electoral roll, over 16 years of age, consent to being appointed and should have received communion at least three times in the previous year. 

The first duty of the PCC (Parochial Church Council) is 'co-operation with the minister in promoting in the parish the whole mission of the church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical' [Synodical Government Measure 1969]. So the PCC has wide responsibilities and serving on the PCC is an opportunity to make a positive contribution to the church's life and witness.

The PCC is an important part of how the Church of England works, acting as a link between the parishes, Deanery Synod and Diocesan Synod, and through them with the General Synod

Joint Church Council
The J.C.C. is made up from members from both the Roman Catholic and the Anglican Parish Church Councils. Most of the groups within the Parish are represented on the J.C.C. whose aim is to improve communication between groups to administer in the running of the Parish and to set policies in an open prayful environment.

The JCC meets once a month to discuss many aspects of church life, from the care and maintaince of our church buildings, to social events, health and safety, joint services during church festivals and our church finances. 

JCC Chair: Lorna McLeod
JCC deputy Chair: Martin Morlidge
