SECRETARY TO THE PAROCHIAL CHURCH COUNCIL
A vacancy exists for the role of Secretary to St Andrew's Parochial Church Council (PCC) to be appointed at the Annual General Meeting to be held on the 27th April 2014. The PCC deals with everything to do with the Church.
This role has been carried out by Zoe Goddard for the past 10 years; but Zoe has also been a Churchwarden for the past year, and wishes to relinquish the Secretaryship.
The position is an Honorary one, and for anyone interested in applying, a full job description is available. Generally, the job entails dealing with correspondence (not a great deal), preparing Agendas for and taking Minutes at meetings of the PCC every two months, etc.. Applicants need not be churchgoers and Zoe would be readily available to assist the successful applicant if required.
