The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is an executive committee of the parish with powers and duties defined by Acts of Parliament.
The minister in charge of the parish and the PCC have a duty to consult together on matters of general concern and importance to the parish, and to co-operate in promoting in the parish the whole mission of the church: pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical. This includes almost everything to do with the church's work in the parish, and its relationship with the deanery and the diocese.
The PCC is a body corporate, which means that it is a separate body from the people who serve on it. PCC members are also trustees, which entails various responsibilities under charity law.
