Aim and purposes

Parochial Church Council (PCC)

St. Chad’s Parochial Church Council (PCC) has had the responsibility of “promoting in the ecclesiastical parish, the whole mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical” along with the vicar. The PCC is also responsible for the maintenance of the Parish Centre.

The Church’s Vision Statement is:

  • a praying and worshipping community
  • a place of spiritual learning, growth and exploration
  • a visible, active and responsible servant of the parish

We seek to be a lively, evolving and caring community through:

  • being welcoming and supportive
  • sharing and celebrating our talents and diversity
  • being open to all

Structure, governance and management

The method of appointment of PCC members is set out in the Church Representation Rules. At St. Chad’s the membership of the PCC consists of the incumbent, churchwardens, members of synod and a maximum of 15 members elected by those members of the congregation who are on the electoral roll of the church. All those who attend our services are encouraged to register on the Electoral Roll and stand for election to the PCC.

The PCC members are responsible for making decisions on all matters of general concern and importance to the parish including deciding on how the funds of the PCC are to be spent.

Thought Of The Month

Just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.

1 Corinthians 12.12,13a
