Parochial Church Council

What is the Parochial Church Council (PCC)?

The running of our parish is the joint responsibility of the vicar and the Parochial Church Council (PCC), which is made up of the parish clergy and elected representatives from our congregation. As such, the PCC is our church’s governing body and also the board of trustees which oversees the church’s charitable works and finances.

The powers and duties of PCCs are laid down in law. Key duties are to co-operate with the vicar in promoting the mission of the Church in the parish and to be responsible for the financial affairs of the church and the care and maintenance of the church fabric and its contents.

As of 2022 there are 25 members of the Minster’s PCC : Five lay members elected to serve until 2025, five to serve until 2024 and five to serve until 2023 : two clergy ex-officio members and eight Church Wardens representing the Minster, Molescroft, Tickton and Woodmansey.

One warden serves in two capacities and the 25th member of the PCC is a representative on the Deanery Synod.

Dates of future meetings (all on Monday):

2022: September 19, November 21

2023: January 23, March 20, May 22, July 24 September 18, November 20
