Christ Church PCC

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) are our board of trustees, who work with the Vicar to hold our leadership team to account for implementing the church's vision and values. They also have legal responsibility for ensuring that we look after our staff, volunteers, premises and finances and remain legally compliant with church and charity law. The majority of our PCC members are elected at our annual church meeting, and it is a great opportunity to serve practically and represent views from across the congregation.
