Church Electoral Roll: The annual revision of the Church Electoral Roll is underway.
If you think you should be on it please check the copy by the West Door. If you would like to be on it please complete a form and place in the collection box or give in to the office by Tuesday 3rd May. What is the Electoral Roll? The church’s Electoral Roll is the register of its voting members; it is a list of those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting. Electoral rolls provide an indication of the real membership and strength of the church.
Who can be on the electoral Roll? If you are baptised and over 16, and either live in the parish, or have worshipped regularly at Christ Church for at least six months; and are committed to being part of the life of the local Church of England congregation. Why Join? Enrolment is a way of saying....“I belong”. For us it is an act of commitment to Christ Church and the church as a whole.
