Parish Secretaries are elected by parish members at the APCM and hold a vital role including sending out notices of meetings, preparing reports for meetings, and taking accurate minutes of meetings. They are also expected to deal with correspondence, keep a check on the parish diary, remain up-to-date with what is going on in the parish and the diocese, and be able to brief the Chair of the PCC.

Training for new PCC Secretaries takes place annually in July in Ashford and Canterbury. Dates for training in 2017 will be advertised here in Spring 2017.
