PCC digest: The PCC (church council) met last week and I’m grateful for those who have given their time on behalf of the rest of us to oversee and take forward what the church is doing. Here’s a brief summary of what we talked about: Safeguarding – this is always an agenda item and we focused particularly on making sure our documentation and processes were up to date. Perhaps worth saying here that although the PCC has responsibility for ensuring good practice, the business of keeping everyone safe is a whole church responsibility. Only together can we create a culture of safety.
The PCC has formed 5 working groups to help ideas translate into action. They are: environmental policy with particular emphasis on the church garden, to look at how we support mission outside the parish, to increase the depth of our worshipping and prayer life, to plan for the appointment of a youth and families worker and to plan ahead for the unlocking of restrictions. Each of those groups is keen to include non PCC members in the discussion and if there is an area where you have a particular interest and would like to contribute, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with the relevant group.
