St Peter's Church Wardens
What do Church Wardens do?
The role of a churchwarden is extremely varied but is best described as management, maintenance, and ministry. However the key skills that make a good Church Warden are:
Most Church Wardens don't think they are upto the task but at St Peter's we have a wide range of people who help and support our Church Wardens.
Management refers to the churchwarden's relationship with the clergy, the PCC and the members of the congregation; maintenance refers to his or her responsibilities to look after the church building; and ministry refers to their pastoral role with regard to the parish priest and to the congregation.
Some of the churchwarden's responsibilities are connected with maintenance. Their work is not just the maintenance of the church building, but helping the smooth running of the church.Churchwardens have to make various reports each year to the annual parochial meeting and to the archdeacon. They may be trustees of some charitable trust connected with the church. They attend PCC and Standing Committee meetings, and meet and pray regularly with the Clergy.
As you can see the role is a very special one and if you are interested in becoming a Church Warden or Deputy please contact Revd Keith Addenbrooke on 0161 928 4182 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, we look forward to hearing from you.
