Since it was published in 1979, An ABC for the PCC has proved an invaluable source for parochial church councillors, churchwardens and clergy alike. It provides information and practical suggestions about the legal and spiritual duties and responsibilities of the PCC, with an emphasis on real partnership between clergy and laity. The 5th Edition includes many new entries, such as data protection; the Alpha Course; the process of appointing Churchwardens and their legal duties; building regulations; the Pastoral Measure; Last Will and Testament, ... It also carries a new foreword by William Fittall, the Secretary General of the General Synod of the Church of England, a name that will resonate with PCC members.
"A life belt for those thrown in the deep end." Mentioned in Church Times, May 2008 "A magnificent compendium...a constant reference point and a welcome source of fresh ideas."--The Reverend Sir Derek Pattinson, former Secretary General of the General Synod "I commend the ABC to Churchwardens and PCC members and congratulate Pitchford on an excellent revision of a really useful compendium."--Bishop Mark Santer "A core essential for all Church of England PCC Groups, this fully revised and updated essential reference book has been long awaited" Publishing News, October 2007 * Publishing News *
