Parochial Church Council

Thank you to all those who continue to support St Andrew’s Church. The PCC very much appreciate the dedicated support of volunteers who continue to make our church a place of welcome and to you for supporting church services and other activities.

Father Aran Beesley. We are delighted to announce that with effect from 17th September 2018 Father Aran Beesley is the new Rector of our parish. We wish Fr Aran and his family every happiness and look forward to supporting him in his new incumbency. 

All Age Services. Attendance at All Age Services on the 3rd Sunday of each month continues to be popular. We are keen to improve these family orientated style services: any feedback, suggestions for improvement and/or help would be welcome.

Toilet/Servery Project. The design plans for our proposed new toilet/servery in the church were rolled out in October 2018 as part of a programme of restoration and improvement. As part of the roll-out, the PCC initiated a Friend’s Group for the project. A letter has been circulated to everyone in the village at the end of October asking you to support the project and sign up to ‘express interest’. Please complete this form and return to Colin Blagrove. This will enable the PCC to initiate an invitation to tender from contractors, application for a grant from heritage lottery and a faculty application. A key feature of a successful grant application will be community involvement so we need your support! A small team has formed to co-ordinate activities: the charter for their work and accountability to the PCC is attached below. A Newsletter (June 2019) giving the latest update is also attached below.

Spring Cleaning Saturday 6th April 2019. Thank you to all those who turned out yesterday for Annual Church Spring Clean. It was a great team effort! A big thank you to everyone for making the church so bright and welcoming.

Annual Church Meetings. These meetings are held in St Andrew's Church on Monday 8th April 2019. Draft minutes and associated attachments are below. The PCC would very much appreciate more help! If you would like to volunteer in any way or to join the PCC please contact the PCC Secretarty Colin Blagrove. 

Previous minutes from PCC meetings are filed below. Earlier minutes may be viewed in the Archive Folder below or hardcopy in the church vestry records. Please contact the PCC Secretary for further information.

The PCC look forward to seeing you in church at one of our services (see Towers & Spires) or at one of our forthcoming events.
