Parochial Church Council (PCC) members
At our APCM, Mark Lambert, Louise McFerran, Holly Morris and Gerry Stride were elected to the PCC.
Becoming a member of the PCC
Have you ever considered serving as a PCC member? Are you a person of prayer who believes that God speaks specifically and guides our church? Do you have a good awareness of what’s going on across the life of our church? Would you like to help us manage a financial budget of around £400,000 a year and use our resources, people and time wisely for the kingdom of God? Then maybe this is the role for you!
Our PCC meets six times a year, helping to shape our church’s vision and strategy, and making decisions about finances, property and policies that support mission and ministry at and beyond HTR. Before each meeting you’ll receive papers about the items it will cover, so you know in advance what will be discussed, and you have a chance to decide what you think about them. Then in the meeting you’ll be able to offer your views, hear those of others, and together take decisions about what we do as a church.
PCC members have a formal role as charity trustees, and some also serve as members of other groups that support the work of the PCC. It’s a really important role! We will elect new members at our next Annual Meeting in 2023 but, in the meantime, if you would like more information, please contact Liz Morris.
