In the Church of England, the Parochial Church Council (PCC) is the governing body of a parish church. It is also has charitable status.
The PCC is a team made up of members of clergy and lay members of the church. Together this team is responsible for the management of St Peter’s Church, and meet at least four times a year to “consult together on matters of general concern and importance to the parish” including practical and spiritual matters, decisions which affect church members, and the upkeep of the church buildings. The PCC also has a duty to promote the mission of the church within the wider community.
The PCC appoints a treasurer to manage the day-to-day finances of the parish. The treasurer keeps members informed on the financial situation and presents a full report to each PCC meeting.
