The PCC and Ministry Team

There is a strong PCC of 8 members and a mandated Ministry Team has been in place for 23 years and has recently engaged in the periodic ‘calling out’. Members are involved in developing our mission and ministry, working through the service planner, in leading some of the services and, along with other members of the congregation, the Intercessions. Eight people are licensed to assist at Holy Communion, including the ‘extended distribution of Holy Communion.


Monthly services include 8am and 11am Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month, a  Family service on the second Sunday in the month and an All Age Worship on the fourth Sunday of the month with a service of Holy Communion on each of the other Sundays in the month.


The Church has both a PCC and Ministry Team.


The PCC, together with the Vicar meets regularly to discuss the business of the Church and comprises eleven members:-


Ann Gallimore  (Churchwarden)       Bronwen Dodd

Geoff Oakley    (Treasurer)                Charles Dodd

Lynne Smith    (Secretary)                 Pauline Ridout

Barbara Oakley  (Safeguarding)      

Louise Taylor  (Messy Church)        



The Ministry Team also meets with the Vicar on a regular basis to review the Lay Ministry of the Church, outside Communion, arrange service patterns discussing their style and content and organize workshops.
