‘Actual communicants’?

The Church Representation Rules state that PCC members must be “actual communicants”. However, if a person who has attended worship most weeks for 40 years, regularly read the lesson, performed sidespersons’ duties, set up for communion and cleared up afterwards, is fully involved in the life of the church, but does not, through integrity, receive communion and is offering to serve as a PCC member, do we really have to refuse him or her?
