A Churchwarden is a lay official in a parish church of the Anglican Communion (Church of England, Anglican Church or Episcopal Church). Holders of these positions are leading members of the parish board, which is usually called a Vestry, Parish Council, or Parochial Church Council (PCC). The role of Churchwarden is extremely varied but generally involves management, maintenance, and ministry. The rights and responsibilities of Churchwardens are laid down in Church Law. And as with most roles within a parish, this is a voluntary (unpaid) position.
