1 - Parochial Church Council
The Parochial Church Council is the governing body of the Parish Church and works with the Vicar in the whole mission of the church. The Vicar, other ministers (lay and ordained), the Churchwardens and our representatives at the Deanery & Diocesan Synods are "ex officio" members of the Council - the remaining 12 members are elected at the Annual Meeting. One third of these retire after a three year term, but may stand for re-election. Those nominated must be over 16, on the Electoral Roll and a regular communicant at Communion. Candidates will be asked to provide a written summary stating why they intend to stand for the post, and their vision of how the church should be moved forward. They can either read the statement themselves, or ask someone to read it for them.
Being a member of the PCC carries with it a degree of responsibility. It is not a position of privilege or pleasure, but one through which Christ's work may be done effectively. Members are expected to attend council meetings, join in the "Awayday" and support the activities of the church wherever possible. St Paul reminds us that we are all members of the body of Christ and that we all have different gifts or talents*. It is our Christian duty to use these talents in the best way we can.
*1 Corinthians 12; 27 and Romans 12; 6
'There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. You are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it.'
1 Corinthians 12: v4&27
'God had given us the task of telling everyone what He is doing. We're Christ's representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God's work of making things right between them.'
2 Corinthians 5: v19
'Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. Matthew 18: Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.'
Matthew 18: v 19-20
