5. Keeping the show on the road

We are a church of about 70 signed-up members, and 40 to 50 worshippers per week on average. We manage around £40,000 a year, and we are accountable to church authorities and the Charity Commissioners. This takes a lot of work to keep going. But it would be irresponsible to neglect our building and finances, so we try to look after them in such a way as to further the church’s mission. We want our building to be comfortable and welcoming, for example with our access ramps and disabled-access toilet. The PCC takes time and care over all this – but it’s all in aid of helping our Mission – it’s not an end in itself.
