Parochial Church Council (PCC)

Parochial Church Council

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is the governing body of a parish church. It is also a charity.

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.

The PCC is responsible for the financial affairs of the church, seeking approval for any alterations to the church building and the care and maintenance of the fabric. It also works with the Rector on the forms of worship, other Christian witness (through prayer for example) and pastoral care within the parish and making representations to higher authorities within the church.

The PCC members are very grateful for the contributions made by current and previous church participants, through financial contributions and volunteering of time in so many ways. Regarding the church buildings, they have expressed their gratitude to those who have joined and contributed through the Friends Scheme. This has allowed for some major repairs to the church boiler and electrics.

The PCC is delighted to be working with the HCCF to raise the funds needed for repairs and improvements to the fabric of the church.

St. Andrew’s PCC meets regularly and is Chaired by our Rector, The Rev'd David Sayle. Our current Church Warden is Alicia Stolliday (01803 867372), to whom any enquiries should be addressed.
