Church Membership



The Electoral Roll is a list of people in the parish who are committed members of one of our three churches and who are eligible to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.

It is hoped that everyone on the Roll will support the work of the church, not only by attending services, but also by giving some of their time to help in church activities, by making a financial contribution and through their prayers.

There are many ways in which people can become more involved in the church and some of these are listed below. Please speak to the Parish Office, sidespeople or churchwardens if you would like to know more about these opportunities.

In line with Church of England requirements, the Electoral Roll is completely renewed every six years, when everyone on the Roll must re-apply. The last time this was done was in 2019 and the next will be in 2025. Each year in between, a review of the Roll is carried out and new names added. The revised Roll is then published and displayed in our churches before the Annual Parochial Church Meeting, which is usually held in April.
