Administering the goods of the parish
Parish Pastoral Council
The PPC is an advisory body to the parish priest and actively assists in the pastoral care of the parish. It helps identify particular areas for development and prioritises opportunities. It is made up of elected members of the community and meets several times a year with the parish priest and other officers. It is fully constituted in line with the norms of the Diocese of Plymouth.
Parish Finance Committee
The committee is responsible for the administration of the material goods of the parish. Areas of responsibility include the promotion and administration of gift aid, the preparation and presentation of the annual financial statement and setting and reviewing the annual parish budget.
The parish is supported by the parish office and the parish secretary. Working with the parish priest the secretary administers the day to day running of the parish; emails and telephone calls, bill payments, contact with parishioners etc. The office is open most weekdays and can be contacted by phoning 01392 274724 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Gift Aid – John Lubugumu
Any income tax payer can sign a simple form to enable the parish to claim back the tax on the gift to the Church, (approximately one quarter of the donation).
Available by standing order, or Sunday collections.
Please contact John Lubugumu via the Parish Office for details. This is an excellent way of increasing your donation without any further costs to yourself.
