Electoral Roll

Would you like to join the Electoral Roll? Gail Kinrade, our Electoral Roll Officer will be available this Sunday between the services and after the 11am service in Ashington, to collect names and any forms to go to the PCC for approval on Monday 3 February. Click through to the website for more information and to download the form here. You can drop the completed forms into the church office.  The Electoral Roll is the register of membership in the Church of England.  It is more than just the right to vote, being on the Electoral Roll is a ‘working register’ of church membership.  It is a record of everyone who regularly worships at one of our churches and indicates your commitment to being part of the Christian community locally. Also, by enrolling, you become a voting member of the Church of England and so help to ensure that all the councils of the Church – the Parochial Church Council, the Deanery Synod, the Diocesan Synod (representing the Anglican churches across a wider area, all under the one Bishop) and the General Synod (for all Anglican churches in England) fully represent its members. If you would like to vote at church meetings, such as the annual meeting (APCM) you need to be on the Electoral Roll of your church.
