Sometimes someone comes up to one of us saying something like, “When you choose the new vicar, do make sure that…” We reply that it’s the PCC who is responsible and the members, not we, who decide what sort of vicar we need.
If they have been dutiful, the PCC will have spent 5 minutes or so completing a questionnaire this week that will reveal the strengths and weaknesses of our church. This will be the starting point for our next meeting later this month. But that’s not to say that you cannot share your views to a friendly PCC member.
Of course if that fails, there’s always prayer!
