The Church Electoral Roll is the central register of all of our worshipers aged 16 and over.


Only those on the roll are allowed to vote in any church elections specifically for members of our Parochial Church Council during the Annual Parochial Church Meeting normally held in April.


Currently the revision will end on 29th March 2020, we do not know if during current situation the deadline will be extended therefore it is best to assume it will not be.


There are a few rules


1) you must be baptised, are a lay person, and are aged over 16


Those under 16 may apply, however only become eligible for voting etc. on attaining the age of 16


2a) You are a member of the Church of England (or of a Church in communion with the Church of England) and are resident in the parish.


OR


2b) You are member of the Church of England (or a Church in communion with the Church of England) and, not being resident in the parish, I have habitually attended public worship in the parish during the period of six months prior to enrolment.


OR

2c You are member in good standing of a Church (not in communion with the Church of England) which subscribes to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity and also declare yourself to be a member of the Church of England and I have habitually attended public worship in the parish during the period of six months prior to enrolment.
