Christ Church Shamley Green
Parochial Church Council


About the Group:



The parochial church council (PCC), is the executive body of a Church of England parish.

The PCC is responsible for the financial affairs of the church and the care and maintenance of the church fabric and its contents. These latter responsibilities are executed by churchwardens or other volunteers. It also has a voice in the forms of service used by the church and may make representations to the bishop and deanery synod on matters affecting the welfare and pastoral care of the parish.

Since 2008 under the Charity Commission's The Excepted Church Charity Programme.

Many parish post-holders are appointed by the PCC such as sidesperson, child protection representative, treasurer, chalice bearers. Churchwardens are elected at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting and attend the PCC and the standing committee.
