The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is made up of the clergy, churchwardens and representatives of the congregation, elected by the annual church meeting of the parish. The Parochial Church Council is a corporate body established by the Church of England. The PCC operates under the Parochial Church Council Powers Measure.

The PCC works with the ministerial team to plan the mission and outreach of the church, be responsible for maintaining the good order of the church premises and debate wider church issues, linking to the Deanery of Christchurch and the Diocese of Winchester.

Summaries of PCC meetings are published regularly in the magazine ‘Parish News.’
