The Parochial Church Council: The PCC

The role of the Parochial Church Council is to provide an official elected team that shares leadership and decision making responsibility for the parish with its incumbent. Together, they co-operate to promote and provide leadership of the whole mission of the Church in prayer, in sharing the Good News of Christ, in welcoming and inviting people to share in God’s saving love for all, in helping those in need, especially disadvantaged members of society and in encouraging fruitful relationships with the local parish school and with other Christian denominations.

Youth Leaders

St. John’s Church has pioneered a Youth Warden scheme over the past 5 years. We firmly believe that when young people actively participate in leadership roles, and their ideas and opinions are listened to and valued, they will feel respected and encouraged to make further contributions. The benefits to the church and to the young people include increased and improved communication skills, greater commitment to the church from the Wardens and other young people, positive influences on the church’s social environment and strengthened church spirit.

Our current Youth Wardens are Anu Adeniran and Oluwakorede Asunloye.
