This is a new revised edition of the authoritative handbook for both newly elected and existing churchwardens. First published in 1921, this handbook has sold well over a million copies and has become the standard guide for churchwardens and members of PCCs. It is indispensable for all who wish to tread a clear path through the sometimes complex legislation and know the rules and extent of their responsibility as elected Church officers.
This new edition has been fully revised to take into account several new developments, including: changes in ecclesiastical law including, the revision of the Pastoral Measure 1983, the Dioceses' Pastoral and Mission Measure 2008, the new power to make Bishop's Mission Orders, and the introduction of Clergy Terms of Service; The Legal Advisory Commission's recommendations on PCCs powers and duties; and, health and safety issues. Flowcharts and checklists add to the usefulness of this volume, as do photocopiable legal forms and notices for practical purposes in parishes.
This is a book always recommended by Diocesan Officers--thegoodbookstall.org.uk
