First published in 1921, this handbook has sold well over a million copies and has become the standard guide for churchwardens and members of PCCs. It is indispensable for all who wish to tread a clear path through the sometimes complex legislation and know the rules and extent of their responsibility as elected Church officers.
Flow charts and checklists add to the usefulness of this volume, as do photocopiable legal forms and notices for practical use in parishes.
Received a mention in The Church Times Top 10 Religious Books section.
