Parochial Church Council (PCC) 

The PCC is the main “management” tool of St. Michael’s and is made up of –

  • The Vicar and clergy team.
  • The Churchwardens (elected by all members of the Parish on an annual basis).  The Churchwardens are responsible to the Bishop for the conduct of services and the general running of St. Michael’s.
  • 15 people from the Electoral Roll, who are elected for a three-year term at the annual Parish Meeting (the APCM) by other members of the Electoral Roll, with a third retiring annually.
  • 5 members who represent the Church on the Deanery Synod.

The PCC is responsible for the overall administration of the Church and for policy-making decisions.  It meets four times a year.  

From a wider perspective, the PCC has the responsibility of co-operating with the Vicar in promoting in the ecclesiastical parish the whole mission of the Church: pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical.  The PCC is committed to enabling as many people as possible to worship at our Church and to become part of our parish community.  It does this by using a number of groups and committees, which report to the PCC on their activities and bring matters that require a decision to the PCC for discussion and agreement.

The PCC also shares responsibility with St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church for the maintenance of the Windhill Churches Centre.

In November 2017 the PCC adopted the following Safeguarding Policy and Action Plan.
