Current charity law now also requires each PCC to state that they gave due consideration to the Charity Commission's guidance in regard to public benefit.
The suggested way to do this is to include within the Objectives and Activities section of the Annual Report the following statement,
"When planning our activities for the year, the PCC gave consideration to the Charity Commission’s guidance on public benefit and, in particular, the specific guidance to charities concerned with the advancement of religion."
This requirement is not optional and should be included within the PCC's Annual Report.
An example annual report is available here:
