Outcomes from the PCC Meeting held on Wednesday, 4th May, 2022

  • Job Descriptions: the PCC has been establishing notes on all the various duties connected with our church life.  This is useful not only for people volunteering for these roles but also to meet our safeguarding obligations.  The PCC is concerned that we still need another Church Warden.
  • Issues posed by Jane’s Sabbatical: arrangements are becoming established for the next two months as we come to terms with not having our Vicar around.  So far, so good!
  • Stewardship Campaign: Mark Johnson is leading on this and the PCC discussed the three inputs to our Sunday worship which Mark will give over the next three months.  The PCC also went through the booklet which will be circulated to all those on the electoral roll.  The PCC is committed to this campaign not only to see if we can increase the income for our church’s work but also to encourage more mission-related activity amongst the church community.
  • Taplow for Ukraine: The PCC received an update on activity within our community related to donations, support for refugees and village links with a village in Ukraine.  The PCC fully supports all this activity.
  • Church’s presence at the School Fete on 24th June: We have been offered and accepted a stall at the fete on which we will sell church items like tea clothes, the Taplow books and Jim’s woodwork.
  • Fabric: The meeting agreed actions related to maintenance of our church and site including expenditure for the removal of a dangerous conifer, pruning etc.  We need to have a working group to cut back brambles in the churchyard.  Action regarding problems with our red carpet is in hand.
  • Social Activities: The PCC welcomed the Open Gardens project and proposal for a Rectory garden party in the summer.
  • Technology: With grant aid, it is hoped to address our sound system problems and related streaming issues.  It is also hoped to obtain a larger screen for presentations.
  • Finance: the PCC acknowledged that our current position requires more work to increase income hence the importance of the Stewardship campaign and other fund-raising activities.
  • Songs of Praise: there is to be a Churches Together Songs of Praise on the last Sunday in August.
