The Chaplaincy Electoral Roll was renewed in 2019 so this year only new members need to fill in forms. All church members are allowed to vote at the Annual Church Meeting, offer themselves for election to Council or various formal committees or as an officer, such as Churchwarden. An important caveat: you must have been on the Roll for 6 months to stand as a representative to Archdeaconry Synod or for Council. (Representation Rules, Part 9 M8).
It is also important for the Chaplaincy that we have accurate information. The number of members on the Electoral Roll influences the size of our Council, the number of representatives we have on Archdeaconry Synod or other bodies and our formal financial contribution to the Diocese.
This year the Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday March 29thand the roll must be closed 3 weeks prior to this date so all forms must be received by Sunday Mar 8th.
The Electoral Roll Form will ask you for detailed information however only your name must be displayed on the Electoral Roll and any other contact information, such as address, phone number and e-mail address, will be kept only for direct use by our Chaplaincy. It will not be shared with any other party without your explicit permission. You may alter or withdraw the information we hold at any time.
If you want to check if you are on the roll or not, a copy of the current roll is hanging on the inner door in the church.
You can download the form here.
This information in more extensive form, can be found on our membership page.
