Parochial Church Council PCC

Our joint PCC is a vibrant and diverse group, numbering 19 members approved at the May 2019 Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM). Matters at St Alban's are governed in the first instance by a smaller District Church Council. Some members of this DCC are also members of the joint PCC.
The PCC meets every two months or so to discuss and manage the affairs of both churches. Members of the PCC and members of both churches who are on the electoral roll are invited to attend the APCM. PCC members are: Revd Ian Welch (Chair); Tessa Andrew; Kay Ash*, Jane Cornish; Shawmine Donaldson; Anne Hoad; Beverley Howard; Pat Hubbard; David Hughes; Alison Lawrie; David Mouqué*; Julia Robinson; Navlet Robotham*; Imogen Roose (Secretary); Ann Piper; Beryl Woodard; Thelma Mouque; Sabrina Oluboden. Bob Lawrie attends meetings to advise on MAP, HeartEdge and Website by invitation and in a non-voting capacity.           * Churchwarden

The rules on membership and operation of a PCC are included in the PCC Secretary's Handbook which can be viewed here - http://southwark.anglican.org/downloads/resources/PCC-Sec-handbookv1.pdf. Meeting agendas follow the same format as that of typical business meetings and are chaired by the incumbent - the Rector. If the Rector is unable to be present a chairperson is appointed in accordance with the rules.

The PCC first developed a Mission Action Plan (MAP) following an 'away-day' in 2014 and it formed the foundation for the future direction of our two churches. The currrent 2019-2025 MAP built on that and the Southwark Diocese Vision 'Hearts on Fire' (view here). The key priority goals recognise the need for growth and social justice. The PCC is responsible for ensuring that both churches run smoothly and that any operational issues are addressed. If you are on the electoral roll at St Andrew's or St Alban's and are interested in becoming a member of the PCC please contact our PCC Secretary, Imogen Roose at imogen@standrewandstalban.org.uk

Please Note: The PCC Meeting scheduled for Wednesday 15 May was postponed following representations made to the Archdeacon of Lewisham & Greenwich concerning irregularities at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting on 7 April 2019. The PCC has requested the Archdeacon to convene an 'Extraordinary Meeting' to hear and address these concerns. Information on the outcome will be posted here in due course.
