Short notice

SINCE the previous edition of A Handbook for Churchwardens and Parochial Church Councillors came out in 2001, a new one had become overdue to the point of inconvenience. The name that appears on the cover with that of the late Kenneth Macmorran is Timothy Briden's. He is Vicar-General of Canterbury province, and a barrister and diocesan chancellor. The main changes he has taken into account follow the Churchwardens Measure 2001 and the Clergy Discipline Measure 2003; but he has also found necessary an expanded chapter on the legal powers and duties of PCCs, "who find themselves increasingly beset by the demands of secular legislation". Thus data protection and disability discrimination are also covered, as well as health and safety and the testing of churchyard monuments. The book now includes flowcharts, checklists, and photocopiable legal forms and notices (Continuum, £18.99; 0-8264-8153-1).
