We are fast approaching our APCM (a church equivalent of an AGM), which will take place after the 10:00am service on 19 April.
Part of our preparations for that includes ensuring our Electoral Roll is up to date. This is a list of our regular worshippers and whilst you don’t have to include your name to be a part of St John’s, it does help us keep a track of our membership. So if, you’ve joined us more recently and your name isn’t yet on the roll, we’d encourage you to submit an application form.
Being on the roll gives you more of a formal say in what happens in the church. In particular, it enables you to vote in elections at the APCM, and stand as a candidate for our leadership body, the PCC. If you wish to add your name to the Electoral Roll, you must be baptized, at least 16 years of age (or sixteen on your next birthday), and live in the parish, or have worshipped at St. John's for at least six months.
Application forms will be available in church. Please return one either by putting it in the box in the porch, or by giving it to Geoff Batten or Paul Kingman by Sunday, 22nd March.
