Our Churchwardens are elected officials in the church and part of the leadership team. With the incumbent, they are responsible for the day-to-day functioning of the parish.
Our Parochial Church Council (PCC) is the leadership team of the Parish. They collaborate with the Vicar in the mission of St Paul’s in realising our vision and values. They are the employers of all church staff (except for the clergy). They are responsible for the financial management of the Parish, the fabric of the building and policies and procedures of the Parish.
