PCC Tonight Event

Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) are crucial bodies in the leadership of Anglican churches, and can make a significant impact for good on church life.  Yet not all PCCs function as well as they might, and many people who serve on PCCs find the experience a tedious one.

We invite clergy and PCC members to join us for PCC Tonight, which will be run in collaboration with the Church Pastoral Aid Society (CPAS).  There are two opportunities to attend in different parts of the Diocese:

Wednesday 17th May at St Mary’s Church, Plympton.  7.30-9.30pm

Thursday 18th May at St Paul’s Church, Tiverton.  7.30-9.30pm

Following a PCC Tonight event held specifically for clergy earlier in the year, these PCC Tonight evenings are intended for both clergy and PCC members.  During a fun and informative evening, participants will look at the purpose and place of PCCs, explore means of tackling common dysfunctions and find new ways to turn vision into action in their context.

PCC Tonight evenings have been run widely around the country, and have received positive feedback from participants:

‘Such a brilliantly useful two hours. So many helpful ideas.’

‘Coming from a very small village with church attendance averaging 8 I was wondering how relevant it would be, but found it very helpful.’

‘Excellent analysis and practical suggestions. Clear your diary and go to this training.’

If you would like to book a place on one of the PCC Tonight evenings, please complete the booking form below.  A form will need to be completed for each individual attending.  To ensure that your booking reaches us, please make sure that you tick the ‘I am not a robot box’ and complete any associated exercises before clicking ‘book’.  If you enter an e-mail address when booking, you should receive an automated e-mail to confirm your place.  Places for the evenings are limited, so we would be grateful if you could let us know if you later decide to cancel your place.  Cancellations and queries should be directed to Sophie West by email or on 01392 294 964.

We look forward to seeing many of you in May!
