St Martin-in-the-Fields Parochial Church Council (PCC) is responsible for promoting the mission of the Church and of St Martin-in-the-Fields. It consults with the Parish on matters relating to our pastoral, social, ecumenical and common life; it employs staff and oversees parish income and expenditure.

The PCC also participates in issues of importance to the wider public and to the Church of England as a whole.

In particular the PCC is responsible for raising funds for the mission of St. Martin’s and the upkeep of its buildings. Having responsibility for Grade I and II listed buildings is a great charge and we rely on the voluntary contributions of our visitors, congregations and users to help us in this. The PCC established a business enterprise in 1987 as part of its response to the need to generate sufficient funds for the upkeep of our day to day running costs. This has also enabled the expansion of our pastoral work, our theological growth and our outreach into the wider world.

The PCC has four permanent committees (Education, Hospitality, International, Church & Worship) and a number of task groups who meet to work on specific projects for a limited period of time.

The membership of the PCC comprises:

Clergy (ex-officio)

Revd Dr Sam Wells, Vicar and Chair
