The Parochial Church Council

The Work of the PCC

The Parish of Cirencester with Watermoor (and Chesterton) has a Parochial Church Council which meets every month. However, as a Parish, with three churches, there are committees that tend to deal with the day to day running of each respective church. All members of the groups represent the views of the congregations of their church.

The PCC meets to discuss matters such as finance, church buildings and parish life. The Deanery Synod, which includes representatives from each parish in the Deanery, meets four times a year to discuss matters of general church interest.

A number of sub-committees report directly to the PCC, often with their recommendations. These include:

Standing committee which meets on alternate months to the PCC, Finance committee, Fabric and Buildings Committee, Parish Social committee, Personnel committee, St Lawrence Congregational committee, Social Responsibility Group, Mission and Life committee, Church Hall at Watermoor Management committee.

Additionally the PCC have representatives on Churches Together in Cirencester, Christian Aid in Cirencester and the Women’s World Day of Prayer.

The PCC consists of elected members from the three congregations who meet regularly to discuss matters that affect the three churches in the Parish of Cirencester. Churchwardens and clergy are also members (ex-officio).
