Final day for Church Electoral Forms to be returned

2019 is the year that all C of E churches have to do a totally new Church electoral Roll. On March 3rd we had the Forms available to fill in and the last date is 4th April.  No more new names can go on until after the APCM on 28 April and then they have to be put before the new PCC when they have their meetings. The forms have on the them information about who is eligible to be on the Roll. We would stress it is for those who are able to worship here  regularly and contribute through prayer & giving and serving unless prevented from doing so through illness or other valid reason. The Roll numbers have to be sent to the Diocese and the national church as a true record of our worshipping congregation.
