Parochial Church Council

 

Originally the administration and finances of a parish were the legal responsibility of the incumbent and the churchwardens. Parochial Church Councils were set up in 1919 as a successor to the vestries, which had had their civil functions removed in 1894 with the establishment of civil parishes. The members of the congregation had little say in the running of the church except in electing the churchwardens.

The Parochial Church Council, or PCC, is an executive committee of the parish with powers and duties defined by certain Acts of Parliament. The membership consists of the clergy and churchwardens of the parish, together with a number of representatives of the laity elected by the annual parochial church meeting of the parish. The PCC secretary and the treasurer are elected from the PCC.

The PCC has the responsibility of co-operating with the incumbent in promoting in the ecclesiastical parish, the whole mission of the church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical. Formally, the PCC is responsible for the financial affairs of the church and the care and maintenance of the church fabric and its contents. It also has a voice in the forms of Service used by the church and may make representations to the bishop on matters affecting the welfare of the parish.

Although the PCC has ultimate responsibility, it delegates some of this work. There are subcommittees of the PCC that meet at appropriate intervals and feed back to the next PCC meeting.
