Meet our Churchwardens and Deputy Wardens

Our Churchwardens are Emily Davies and Bill Thomas.

The role of the Churchwarden is to represent the congregation, together with the PCC, and Church of England guidance defines their responsibilities as follows[1]:

“They are the foremost in representing the laity and in co-operating with the incumbent, and they have a duty to maintain order and decency in the church and churchyard, particularly during the times of divine service. In co-operation with the incumbent, churchwardens are generally responsible for the day-to-day functioning of the parish”

Churchwardens also have responsibilities to promote Safeguarding in the Church, and to provide a line of accountability for the Vicar and the Staff Team.

The Churchwardens are elected from the congregation each year at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting [APCM] and serve a 1 year term of office, although they may – if elected at subsequent APCMs – serve consecutive terms of up to 6 years.

In addition, Christ Church Fulwood PCC has Deputy Churchwardens.  Whilst not a formal role in the Church of England, Deputy Wardens help share the workload of the Churchwardens.

Deputy Church Wardens are appointed by the PCC, and must, at the time of their appointment, be members of the PCC.
