Governance and membership

 

The church is run by our Parochial Church Council and overseen by the current Church Wardens, Paul Morris and Audrey Stocks

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.

The Electoral Roll is the official membership list of St. Wilfrid’s as presented to the Diocese. If you are on the Electoral Roll, you are able to nominate, be nominated and vote for PCC and Deanery Synod membership.

To qualify for admission on the Electoral Roll you will either

  • need to be a member of the Church of England living in the parish,
  • a member of the Church of England not living in the Parish but having worshipped habitually in the parish for the 6 months prior to enrolment

Forms are available at the back of Church or alternatively you can print a Application-for-Enrolment-Electoral-Roll

 

Today we have over 150 people on the electoral role and many more who attend our regular services and midweek activities.

Our safeguarding is overseen by Richard Mayne (Parish Safeguarding Officer) and his team
