DOCUMENT
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.

Any baptised adults (16 years or over) who live in the parish, or those who have worshipped regularly at
St. Mary’s for at least six months and are committed to being part of the life of the local Church of England congregation are able to join the Electoral Roll.

 

Why Join? Enrolment is a way of saying “I belong”. For us it is an act of commitment to St Mary’s and the church as a whole. It opens the way for a greater involvement in the life of the church at every level.

If you have any queries you can email our Electoral Roll Officer. View accompanying notes here.

NOMINATION FOR ELECTION TO THE DEANERY SYNOD

The Deanery Synod is part of the way the Church of England gives people at different levels a chance to discuss key issues and organise the church's ministry and mission. It sits between the parishes with their Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) and the full diocese, with its Diocesan Synod. It is convened by an Area Dean and Lay Chair and consists of all the licensed clergy in the Deanery and lay people elected by the parishes at their Annual Parish Church Meeting. The lay members serve for three years. The Synod meets three times a year.
