Loving and serving Jesus, each other,
Greater Manchester and beyond.

GOVERNANCE
Saint Philips Chapel Street is part of the Church of England.

Leadership of the overall vision and strategy of the church is the responsibility of the Rector, whilst the governance of the church – making sure we do what we say we’re going to do and look after the building etc – is in the hands of the PCC (Parochial Church Council).

The PCC functions like the trustees board of a charity and meets four times a year. The executive of the board, comprising the Clergy, Church Wardens, Treasurer and Secretary, is the Standing Committee which meets monthly.

The PCC is an elected body made up of people on the Church Electoral Roll. Anyone who has worshiped with us for six months can sign up to be on the Electoral Roll, which allows you to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting when we elect new PCC members.
PCC representatives are elected for three years, and so each year a third of the PCC is re-elected.

The staff team work to implement the vision of the church under the leadership of the Rector and the governance of the PCC.

And we’re all here to help each person in the church know God’s love and encourage them to step out in faith to love and serve Jesus, each other, Greater Manchester and beyond.
