Electoral Roll

The Electoral Roll of the parish – of which people must be a member to stand for or vote in church leadership elections – was reviewed over the period from 17th April to 6th May.  At last year's meeting there were 380 members of the Electoral Roll.  During the year 21 names were added to the roll and 20 names removed.  The Roll therefore stands at 381.

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
