The method of appointment of PCC members is set out in the Church Representation Rules. At St. Nicholas’ the membership of the PCC consists of the incumbent ( Priest -in-Charge )the team vicar, churchwarden, deanery synod representative and members elected by those members of the congregation who are on the electoral roll of the church. All those who attend our services/members of the congregation are encouraged to register on the Electoral Roll and stand for election to the PCC.
The PCC members are responsible for making decisions on all matters of general concern and importance to the parish including worship, mission and outreach, fabric and finance and are all responsible for deciding on how the funds of the PCC are to be spent. New members receive initial training from the diocese into the workings of the PCC and will have DBS checks and safeguarding training.
