The Parochial Church Council (PCC)

PCC


The primary object of the PCC is the promotion of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to the doctrines and practices of the Church of England. St James’s PCC has the responsibility for co-operating with the incumbent in promoting, in the ecclesiastical parish, the whole mission of the church – pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical.

The PCC is an executive committee of the parish with powers and duties defined by certain Acts of Parliament. In addition to their formal duties, PCC members act as representatives for all parishioners in the affairs of the church.
