The Electoral Roll is now closed until the APCM, but if you have missed the deadline and wish to be on the roll, then you may still submit a form and your name will be added to the roll after the APCM.
Are you on the list?
It’s that time again. Every six years, all Church of England parishes compile a completely new Church Electoral Roll, and therefore we are about to draw up a new one here at St Andrew’s.
Please note that even though you may have been on the existing roll for many years, you’ll still need to fill in a new form, otherwise your name won’t be included.
There are three good reasons you should make sure you stay on, or get on, the St Andrew’s electoral roll:
- Electoral rolls provide a true indication of the real membership and strength of the Church, both locally and nationally. Putting your name on the roll is a way of saying “I belong” – so it is an act of commitment to St Andrew’s and to the Church as a whole.
- Joining the electoral roll opens up the way for greater involvement in the life of the Church, at parish, deanery, diocesan and national levels. And you will be entitled to vote at our Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM).
- It is an important statement of witness, and step along the path of discipleship. With your name on the electoral roll the strength of the Church can be seen in our area, and across the country.
If you wish to be included on the new roll, and are baptised and aged 16 or over, please make sure that you fill in an electoral roll form and return it to church by Sunday 17 March at the latest.
Forms are available in the church vestibule, or if you prefer you can download and print as many forms as you need.
