Who we are 

The Benefice is fortunate that there is a willing and able team of people who support the life of the parish and the ministry of the church. 

The PCC (Parochial Church Council) meets monthly. The Vicar is the chair and each PCC has a vice chair (Peter John and Len Taylor).

The focus of the agenda alternates between finance and buildings and mission and outreach. Each PCC meets separately to discuss their finance and buildings and then come together to discuss our mission and outreach.

The next meetings are

St. Mary's: Wednesday 21st Feb 2024

Christ Church: Thurs 22nd Feb 2024
