PCC Update ~ from 11th March 2015

PCC update

This leaflet provides a brief overview of the work discussed at the PCC meeting on 11 March 2015.

  • Mission Action Planning – We spent a considerable part of the meeting using this Diocesan tool to consider how we might translate the findings from the consultations into concrete actions for the coming year. Watch this space!
  • Finance update – thank you for your generous response to our 2015 Pledge Appeal. A summary of the PCC’s 2014 Accounts and the 2015 budget will be presented at the APCM on 29 April.
  • Diocesan Safeguarding Procedures – A new online checking service for DBS checks is now in operation. Jane Keeling is the Parish Lead Recruiter for this and will be supported by Helen Gregory.
  • Election hustings – We agreed that St Mark’s would provide up to £50 financial support for an interpreter at the Sheffield Central hustings which will be held on 19 April at the Broomhall Centre.
  • Section 12 meeting – this meeting will be held on 13 April and we hope to move quickly after this to advertise for our new incumbent.

 

The full minutes of the PCC meetings will be available on the PCC board and on the St Mark’s website once they have been agreed by PCC members, but please talk to one of us if you would like to discuss any of these topics (see overleaf).

The role of the PCC

As your PCC, we aim to represent the views of the whole congregation. We not only make decisions on a broad range of issues affecting church life, but also help to shape the vision and strategy of what we do here at St Marks.
