Welcome to our Churches
Whether you are planning to visit one of our villages or already live in the area, you are very welcome in all of our churches: come for a service, or just enjoy a look round.

The Parochial Church Council (PCC)
The PCC meets about four times a year. It consists of elected members from the two villages*. Their remit is to keep the fabric of our churches going and give support to the Rector for Church Services. Our work to maintain the fabric of the Churches is aided by the generous donations from villagers for which we are very thankful, as we receive no financial assistance otherwise. The PCC is concerned with the Church of England Churches, St Michael's and All Saints' and the Astons Burial Ground in the Croft. Liaison is maintained with the United Reformed Church and combined services are held from time to time.
Members of the PCC organise rosters of volunteers to read the lessons and act as sidesmen; to clean the Churches; to arrange flowers in the Churches; to mow the grass and to provide refreshments after services. Any volunteers to share these activities are always welcomed! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are always looking for donations to assist in the upkeep of our beautiful churches and these will be gratefully received.
*The PCC members are Churchwarden Tim Lake, Biddy Hawker(secretary to the PCC), Christopher Hawker, George Curtis, Joanna Hart, Claire Picken, Vivien Biggs, Ian Wishart and Amanda le Conte. The treasurer is Mike Hill, a non-voting member.
