Enrolment on the Church Electoral Roll
The Electoral Roll is the Parish Church’s register of electors and is the list of those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting which this year will be held on Sunday 29th April.
Regular worshippers to this Church are asked to consider applying to enrol on the Church Electoral Roll.
Anyone who has not yet had their name added to the roll, and wishes to do so, should apply for entry by completing a form and returning it to Tracy Perrett, the Electoral Roll Officer, no later than Sunday 8th April.
Those on the roll are voting members of the Church of England and so help to ensure that all the synodical councils of the Church – the Parochial Church Council, our Deanery Synod, the Oxford Diocesan Synod and the General Synod – are fully representative of its members. Members of the Parochial Church Council and Parish Representatives to Synod are required to be on the Electoral Roll. The number of years on the electoral roll is also a qualifying factor for a parental applicant to Ranelagh School.
Forms are available in the entrance lobby or from Tracy or by downloading from the Church website. The current Electoral Roll is also on display in the entrance lobby.
If you have any queries about the Electoral Roll please give Tracy a call (01344 773808) or send her an email.
