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 January 2024 there are 23 members of the PCC, five lay members elected to serve until May 2026, five to serve until May 2025 and three to serve until May 2024 (the date of the APCM) The two current Minster clergy are ex-officio members and there are eight Church Wardens representing the Minster (5) St Leonard’s, Molescroft (1) St Paul’s, Tickton (1) and St Peter’s, Woodmansey (1).

One Warden serves as a Minster Warden and Warden of a daughter church. The 23rd member is the Deanery Synod Representative.
