We work with parishes to help PCCs be more effective in leading the whole mission of the Church; pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical.
Different parishes have asked us to help in different ways.
Our work has involved consulting PCC members about the health of the PCC, and preparing an action plan to improve meetings and decision making. We also attend PCC meetings to lead reflections on progress.
Elsewhere we have reviewed the relationships between the PCC and its subcommittees and helped clarify the level of delegation, decision-making and accountability.
We can help PCCs renew their sense of purpose and priorities and the ways in which PCC members work in partnership with each other and clergy. Such support often takes place when there has been a relatively large turnover in PCC membership, though PCCs with long standing membership also find this useful.
