A parochial church council is the executive committee of a Church of England parish and consists of clergy and church wardens of the parish, together with representatives of the laity.
Legally the council is responsible for the financial affairs of the church parish and the maintenance of its assets.
The PCC is responsible for the financial affairs of the church, the insurance, the care and maintenance of the church fabric and its contents and the care and maintenance of the churchyard.
The council has a voice in the forms of service used by the church, rights regarding women priests and rights in relation to church appointments.
The PCC is required to appoint a church electoral roll officer who maintains the roll of lay members entitled to take part in the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.

A PCC is always a charity.
