It's great fun being on the Parochial Church Council.
The principal purpose of the PCC is "promoting in the parish the whole mission of the Church".
The mission of the Church is the gift of participating through the Holy Spirit in the Son’s mission from the Father to the world. The Five Marks of Mission of the Anglican Communion are to:
- Proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
- Teach, baptise and nurture new believers
- Respond to human need by loving service
- Seek to transform unjust structures of society
- Strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.
The current PCC members are
Rev. James Harratt
John Payne is the PCC secretary
