School Governors

I appreciate that many PCC members will feel that they don’t have enough time to do their PCC member duties, so the thought of taking on another role is not worth contemplating, but please think again.

Being a governor of a school or academy is one of the most rewarding roles that you can take on. During visits you have the pleasure of seeing how the children thrive in the safe, Christian, caring and learning environment that you have helped to develop. Yes, it carries responsibilities and can involve giving up quite a bit of time, but like everything in life, the rewards are tenfold. By working with the school or academy it will help create a rewarding two way relationship, which is ideal when you are planning child or family activities at church. If you are unable to take on the role yourself, you may know someone who would.
