Parochial Church Council
St Mary the Virgin Parochial Church Council (PCC) has the responsibility of co-operating with the incumbent priest-in-charge in promoting in the ecclesiastical parish the whole mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical. The council also makes decisions, in conjunction with the diocese, about the upkeep of the church. Meetings take place in Vernham Dean usually six times a year.
