Minutes of the meeting of the Parochial Church Council of St. Nicholas Church, Shepperton, held in the Parish Centre, at 8.15, on Tuesday, 12th. May, 2020. 20200512_pcc_minutes_2.pdf
At St Nicholas we recognise that we are part of the World-wide family of Christ,
and that our “neighbour” exists both locally and throughout the world.
We have an ongoing commitment to the community of St Simeon of Cyrene, based in and around Milange, Mozambique,
We look at particular seasons, particularly Lent and Harvest, to support a Church Charity.
In our Summer and Winter Fairs we have we have a source of charitable income from which to ask those at the APCM
to choose two recipients of outward giving, one home and one abroad.
(In recent years we have kept a principle of dividing the fairs between the mission of St Nicholas Church and outward giving).
We are aware of a particular responsibility for the Church of England’s Missionary Societies,
such as the United Society & the Church Missionary Society.
We reserve the right to respond to specific needs arising out of world events or other needs brought to our attention,
by way of designated special collections or fund raising events.
We would ask anyone proposing a special collection to make the PCC secretary aware of this in advance, in order to prevent over exposure.
St Nicholas will continue to support the work of charities operating in Shepperton via the historic funds of the Shepperton Parish Charities.
