The Team Council exists to coordinate the direction of the Team and support the Parishes in their ministry.
The Wythenshawe Team Ministry comprises four separate parishes each with their own Parochial Church Council (PCC) which is responsible for making decisions about the life, ministry and mission of each parish. However we share resources, experience and expertise across the Team and the Team Council has a role in overseeing this collaborative ministry.
The Parish of St Michael's is also an informal part of the Wythenshawe Team and so has two observer members on the Team Council. Read more about the grouping here.
