Church Administration & Electoral Roll
The Electoral Roll is our parish church’s register of electors. In the same way that being on the civic Electoral Roll allows you to vote in parliamentary and local elections and referenda, joining the Church Electoral Roll means that you can vote on Church matters, attend the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) and stand for election to the Parochial Church Council (PCC).
Being on the Electoral Roll does NOT make you a “member” of the Church; simply regarding your church as your spiritual home does that.
You can, of course, be a full and active member of your Church without joining the Roll. Being on the Electoral Roll does not entail signing up to any additional commitments, however, it does help the Church show its strength. Representation on the governing bodies of the church depends on the number on the Electoral Roll.
Joining the Roll is compulsory if you wish to:
- Stand for election to the PCC or other synodical council (such as the Deanery, Diocesan or General Synod)
- Attend the APCM and participate in votes
If you would like to register for the electoral roll please download the attached form and return to the Electoral Roll officer - see About Us page for contact details.
