Team Council

Loddon Reach has a Team Council to manage benefice matters and is made up of the clergy and three members from each of the four Parochial Church Councils (PCCs).


Each parish has a PCC made up of members of the congregation who are normally elected for a three-year term, although this can vary. These terms overlap so elections are held each year to replace or re-elect some of the members.


Each church also has two churchwardens. Click here for contact details.

The church community

The benefice is also ably assisted by a team of volunteers who make music, ring the bells, decorate the church with flowers, clean the churches, maintain the churchyards, run children’s and young people’s activities, help out in Caf’Active, organise fundraising activities and more. If you have any questions about any one of the churches, please contact the Benefice Office in the first instance.
