Our PCC & Wardens

  • Redland PCC

PCC

The PCC  (Parochial Church Council) is the church’s governance group and meets roughly six times a year. It consists of:

  • Clergy licensed to the parish
  • The two churchwardens, who are elected each year at the AGM
  • Four members who are elected every three years to represent Redland on the Deanery Synod
  • Twelve other members, four of whom are elected at the AGM each year for three years

 
There are pictures of individual PCC members on the noticeboard in the church halls.

The PCC has a number of sub-committees who oversee specific areas of the church’s ministry, and also a Standing Committee, that meets in between PCC meetings, ensuring that decisions taken at PCC are actioned. It consists of the Vicar, Associate Vicar, wardens, treasurer, chair and secretary.

 

Churchwardens

Although the wardens are formally elected each year, our custom at Redland is for them to serve for four years, with a new warden elected every two years. They are key lay leaders, with some specific legal responsibilities, but with the more important role of being a bridge between the church and the bishop and of supporting the clergy and staff team in the ministry at Redland. We are blessed with some exceptional wardens!
