The Parochial Church Council (PCC)
The PCC of All Saints with Holy Trinity is the governing body and charitable trustees of the church. It is made up of the Rector and any other licensed clergy, the Church Wardens and other elected lay members of the congregation. Together they have the legal responsibilty for the church building and the church's finance and work together on the whole mission of the church.
The PCC works with the Rector to set the direction of travel for the church and over recent years has embraced a commitment to being an Inclusive and Eco friendly church. Our meetings are both prayerful and practical and often involve tea and cake!
'A good PCC is a place of grace, forgiveness, prayer, wisdom and hope...it strives to be constructive, cooperative and cheerful. It looks up to God, looks out to the wolrd, looks forward faithfully, and looks after others. It thinks, prays, wrestles, argues, laughs and cries, and does it all with integrity and humility.'
Taken from The PCC Member's Essential Guide by Mark Tanner.
The Rector is the incumbent of the parish and working with the PCC and all members of the congregation is responsible for the worship, work and witness of the church. Our current Rector, Revd. Wendy Dalrymple joined us in May 2015, the latest in a line of Rector's going back to the 12th Century.
The church wardens are officers of the church and have specific responsibilities under Canon Law of the Church of England including being responsible for the church buildings and content and representing the Bishop in the parish. They are involved in the oversight of Sunday services and in much of the day to day running of the church. They are supported by a team of deputy wardens who share out many of the responsibilities between them.
