Nominations to the PCC
Only those who are on the Electoral Roll can stand for PCC. Please pray for those you would like to nominate for this important ministry. A copy of the PCC Nomination form is available to download here or can be obtained at Church.
The PCC is the elected body of the Church which meets during the year to conduct business and make decisions concerning the life of the Church.

Nominations to the Deanery Synod

If you are on the Electoral Roll you can also stand for Deanery Synod. You can read about this year’s Elections to Deanery Synod by clicking here. The Deanery Synod which is made up of all our local Anglican churches is an important body and helps to shape the decisions taken by the Church of England at General Synod.

Please pray for those you would like to nominate for these important roles on PCC and Deanery Synod.
