Parochial Church Councils

In the Church of England the Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) are the legal governing bodies of the churches and as a body make decisions regarding each church. Harston, Hauxton and Newton PCCs consist of members of the clergy and members of the community who are on the church electoral roll.  The Vicar, Churchwardens and Deanery Synod representative are all ex officio, automatically part of the PCC. The PCCs meet between 4 and 6 times a year.


Each year at the annual meeting Churchwardens, PCC members and PCC officers are elected and here are the results of the 2022 APCM elections.

Safety

Covid is an aerosol-spread infection. Scientists have agreed that the spread is reduced by wearing masks, distancing of at least a metre, ensuring good ventilation and providing hand sanitiser. In church we will continue to provide ventilation, hand sanitiser and reasonably spaced chairs.


It is your responsibility to keep yourself as safe as you wish yourself and others to be.


Although masks are no longer a legal requirement you are very welcome to wear one.


If you are not wearing a mask please keep at least a metre between yourself and anyone you are in conversation with who is not of your own household.


This plan follows, and will continue to take account of, guidance from the Government and from the Church of England. We aim to act with care and common sense in protecting our congregation and others who use the church, while allowing worship and other activities to proceed as far as possible without hindrance.

Food Hub

The Food Hub is open every Wednesday and Saturday 11.30am - 1pm at the Harston Baptist Church to help people in our area (not just Harston) to be able to access essential food items at the community pantry and to get fresh produce from our larder that may end up in landfill. The fresh produce is available for everyone to share but the community pantry is only for people who actually need it.

In 2021 the Food Hub gave out 1,867 food bags to families and individuals in need, supporting 172 adults and 132 children in Harston, Hauxton, Newton, Foxton, Haslingsfield, Barrington, Shepreth, Melbourn, Meldreth, Trumpington, and Duxford.
