Parochial Church Council

The PCCs are responsible for "co-operating with the Rector in promoting the whole mission of the church" and for the resources that enable this to happen (e.g. finances and buildings). They are also responsible for areas like Safeguarding and Health and Safety, and for liaising with the 'higher councils' of the Church of England.

PCCs and Churchwardens are elected at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting by and from those on the church electoral roll. In addition to the Rector (who is also Chair of the PCCs), the Associate Minister, and the Curate, the following are members of the PCCs for All Saints' Chilton and St Matthew's Harwell.
