Our governance structure
The Parochial Parish Council (PCC) is responsible, with the Vicar, for promoting the whole mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical in the parish. The Parochial Church Council is a corporate body (PCC Powers Measure 1956, Church Representation Rules 2006) and is a charity registered with the Charity Commission under registration number 1133046.
It has maintenance responsibilities for St Alfege Church, Church Street, Greenwich SE10, the church hall and other church properties, as well as responsibilities for paid staff, and decides how the funds of the PCC are to be spent.
The Annual Parish Council Meeting (APCM) is usually held in spring each year. The last meeting took place on 24 March 2019. Members of the PCC are either ex officio or elected annually by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting in accordance with the Church Representation Rules, or co-opted in accordance with those rules. The e-officio members are the Vicar, the Churchwardens and the Southwark Pastoral Auxiliary. Deanery Synod members who are elected once every three years also sit on the PCC.
