The Churchwardens

The role of Church Warden is legally and practically vital in the life of the church. Ultimately it is the Church Wardens who are responsible to the Bishop for the conduct of services, the church finances, buildings and the provision of occasional services such as weddings and funerals. In practice this responsibility is shared with the vicar who remains responsible for the vision and direction of the church and its spiritual health and mission. This requires a close working relationship of mutual trust and respect. The Church Wardens are Leigh Welham and Les Richardson.

The Parochial Church Council (PCC)

The PCC is responsible for the financial affairs of the Church and the care and maintenance of the church fabric and its contents. It also has a voice in the forms of Service used by the church and may make representations to the bishop on matters affecting the welfare of the parish. You are invited to consult any member of the PCC on any aspect of Church life.

The PCC at St John the Baptist is elected at the Annual Meeting.
