PCC (Parochial Church Council)

The role of Frensham Parochial Church Council is to provide an official, partly-elected team that shares leadership responsibility for the Benefice with the Vicar. 


It is the shared responsibility of the Vicar and PCC to consult on all matters of general concern and importance to the Parish. Together, they co-operate to promote and provide leadership of the whole mission of the Church:

• In prayer – both personal and corporate.

• in pastoral ways - looking after individuals.

• in evangelistic ways - sharing the Good News of Christ and inviting people to share in God’s saving love for all.

• in social concern - helping all in need, especially disadvantaged and persecuted members of society.

ecumenically - encouraging fruitful relationships with other Christian denominations.

 This requires mutual support, understanding, and an open discussion of ideas and plans, leading to shared decision-making.

It is equally the collective duty of the PCC to be constantly aware of the views of the congregation and to maintain good mutual communications so that people know they are fairly represented and considered.

The PCC will focus principally on how to optimise the church’s mission and purpose - including work with children, families, young people, adult nurture, worship, outreach – and the provision of appropriate resources to enable the agreed vision. It will seek to discern God’s evolving vision for the Benefice and how to bring that vision into being.

The PCC is responsible for the condition, upkeep and insurance of all buildings, the churchyard, and movable items. This includes carrying out work recommended by the  ‘quinquennial’ - a report on the state of the church buildings produced every five years by an approved inspecting architect appointed by the Benefice.
