Each parish has a governing body called the Parochial Church Council, made up of clergy, churchwardens and laypeople who are elected by members of the congregation. Anyone who is on the church's electoral roll is eligible to stand for the PCC for a three-year term of office. All decisions concerning worship, finance, the building and our community activities must be discussed and ratified by the PCC. The PCC also regularly updates our Mission Action Plan, listing our current objectives for St Mary's Church.
