Parochial Church Councils (PCCs)
Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) are responsible for supporting the local clergy in the running and management of their benefice or parish. Their primary function is stated as 'promoting in the parish the whole mission of the Church'. This short sentence actually covers a significant and varied workload encompassing all aspects of parish life, finance and governance.
Further information on specific issues is available from the relevant department pages on this site, or visit the Resources for Parish Officers page for downloads (including the PCC Secretaries' Handbook) and forms.
