They have a particular brief for the fabric and buildings of the Church, but also share in the pastoral care of all the parishioners, as well as keeping the clergy under control! They are generally responsible for the day-to-day functioning of the parishes and overseeing the maintenance of the church building and hopefully the smooth running of the church. In this capacity, churchwardens are considered the leading lay member of the congregation.
