Governance

St Peter’s Bentley is a parish church, part of the Church of England. We are a registered charity no 1191023. Our trustees are the members of the Parochial Church Council or PCC. Our full legal name is ‘The Parochial Church Council of the Ecclesiastical Parish of St Peter Bentley’, but you can call us St Peter’s Bentley or St Peter’s Bentley PCC if you’re feeling formal.

The Church of England is the Established Church. That means our rules and regulations have legal status. Whilst most charities are governed by a trust deed or constitution, we are governed by legislation, namely the Parochial Church Councils (powers) Measure 1956 (as amended), which sets out what a PCC can do, and also the Church Representation Rules 2020 which are set out in schedule 3 to the Synodical Government Measure 1969.

Our current trustees are:
