Annual Church Meeting 2019 

Please find below all the information from our APCM held on 28th April 2019
 

Minutes of last year’s meetings

The Minutes of the meeting held in 2018 were approved by the meeting.  They can be viewed here.


Electoral Roll
Last year, the Electoral Roll – of which people must be a member to stand for or vote in church leadership elections – stood at 440. Every 6 years, the Church of England requires every parish to completely renew their Roll – this means that every name is removed, and those who wish to be members are invited to join afresh. 
 
This was done over the period from 24th February to 7th March, and our revised Roll today stands at 354.
 
There are currently around 550 adult members and over 150 children on the church database. We strongly encourage members of the church family who are not yet on the Electoral Roll to register, and this can be done by collecting a form at the InfoHub or online here

Election of Church Wardens
Sian Lowe stood down as Church Warden at the meeting.  There was only one nomination for Church Warden at the meeting:  Graham Stuart was nominated by Mark Orriss and Catherine Simmonds.  He was elected to serve as Church Wardens for the coming year.  Paul explained that once a second Church Warden had been identified, an additional meeting would be called to elect them.
