Papers for the APCM

The first contains the agenda for the meeting, the minutes of last year's meeting, a Vicar's report from Trevor Patterson, a Churchwarden's report from Mark Lambert and David Ewart, a series of reports covering a wide variety of church groups and activities, and a report on Holy Trinity School from Head Teacher Penny Cox. Together they give an encouraging picture of what has been happening in the life of our church over the past year.

Parochial Church Council (PCC) members

At our Annual Meeting, Karen Block, Smriti Prasadam-Halls and Catherin Tidmarsh were elected as PCC members.

Becoming a member of the PCC

Are you a person of prayer who believes that God speaks specifically and guides our church?

Are you a committed member of Holy Trinity with a good awareness of what’s going on across the life of our church?
Would you like to be part of a group that manages a financial budget of almost £400,000 a year and helps the church to use its resources, people and time in the best way possible for the kingdom of God?

If your answer to these questions is yes, then consider becoming a member of the PCC. It meets six times a year, helping to shape our vision and strategy, and making decisions about church finances, property and policies that support mission and ministry. PCC members have a formal role as charity trustees, and some also serve as members of other groups that support the work of the PCC. They are elected at the APCM, normally for a three year term.
