Governance and membership

 

The church is run by our Parochial Church Council and overseen by the current Church Wardens, John Anderton and Jill Howard.

The Parish Church Council (PCC) is the charitable governing body of the local church, the membership is made up of clergy and elected members of the laity who are members of the church community.  It’s principle purpose is to promote the mission of the church within the parish.
