In accordance with Church Representation Rules, each church has to prepare a new Electoral Roll once in every six years. This is due this year and means that everyone who was on the old Roll has to complete a new form to apply to be on the new one. The Roll is a list of people who are not only followers of Jesus but also committed members of their local church. If you wish to stand for office and/or vote at your church’s Annual Parochial Church Meeting or become a sidesperson, then membership on the Electoral Roll is essential. Please contact your church for application forms and further details on closing dates.
