PCC Secretaries

PCC Secretaries have a key and core leadership role in a parish, keeping the workings of the Parochial Church Council running smoothly and in compliance with Church and charity law.

Whether you’re new to this role, or have been in post for some time, here are some support services to help:

National resources 

Parish Resources website

This is a super national Church of England reference site for all kinds of procedures, regulations and administration. There is a dedicated page for PCCs which outlines all you’d need to ensure your PCC’s compliance with various regulations and procedures. A handy checklist which you can download is included.

You might also find the page outlining PCC Governing documents is helpful.

Church Representation Rules

You will also need to be familiar with the Church Representation Rules. If you would like to purchase a hardcopy, a booklet is available from Church House Publishing

Helpful books and documents

The PCC Member’s Essential Guide, available from Church House Publishing offers easy-to-follow guidance on all aspects of running and being on the PCC.
