The Church Council
The parish is the fundamental unit of the Church of England. The Ecclesiastical Parish of Farley with Pitton is part of the Clarendon Team led by the Team Rector, Nils Bersweden.
The Church Council is formally known as the Parochial Church Council (PCC) and is the governing body of the parish. PCCs are creatures of statute set up originally by statute in 1919. The PCC is a charity, although excepted from the need to register with the Charity Commission.

All Age-Eucharist Services
There are bi-monthly All-Age Eucharist services at Farley led by the Rev Elizabeth and with the involvement of the Pitton and Farley PathFinders. These are specifically to encourage families to attend and to introduce new people to a more family-centred form of worship and celebration.
Previously we have had a Christingle Service with Christmas Tea Party in the Nave and a Mothering Sunday Service with the Farley and Pitton 1st Brownie Pack. Refreshments are served after the service.
The Lay Pastoral Assistants are friendly faces and helping hands in meeting the pastoral needs of the community. Our LPAs in Pitton and Farley are Sue Sinclair and Sara Bossom of Pitton and Gill Morgan of Farley.
We make mission and priority and our churches work together to support people in need. The churches ‘tithe’ or give 10% of our gross income to these causes and hold special fundraising events are organised. In 2011, we are supporting:
‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
We also collect food and supplies for the Trussell Trust in Salisbury, and hope to offer some support to emergency appeals. Donations to the Trussell Trust Food Bank can be left at the Post Office and Village Shop, Pitton or in St. Peter’s Pitton.
