Pictured above at their October 2012 meeting are members of St James' Parochial Church Council. The Vicar, the Rev David Griffiths, is on the far left of the back row. This year marks the church's 300th anniversary. At the time the church was founded Silsden's population was around 600. The photograph below shows the Church Council in 1912, the year of the 200th anniversary. The Vicar, the Rev John Berry, is seated fifth from left in the front row. The main purpose of the PCC is to promote within the parish the whole mission of the Anglican Church.
