Church Wardens

Churchwardens

Churchwardens are parish lay officials in the Church of England. Holders of these positions are leading members of the parish board, the Parochial Church Council (PCC). It is usually a voluntary position for which the rights and responsibilities are laid down by Church Law.

The office of Churchwarden is one of the earliest forms of recognised lay ministry. As far back as the 13th century Churchwardens were custodians of the fabric and furniture of the Church. Even today, they are the legal guardians of the church’s moveable furniture, plates and ornaments of which they are required to keep an accurate and up-to-date inventory.
