Church Electoral Roll - Complete Renewal in 2013
What is the Church Electoral Roll?
The Church Electoral Roll is your parish church's register of electors; it is the list of those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting where the elections take place for:
a) the Parochial Church Council;
b) the parish's representatives on the Deanery Synod.
Any person entitled to attend the Annual Parochial Church Meeting may raise any question of parochial or general church interest.
The Electoral Roll is revised each year before the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.
Every six years (2007, 2013, 2019, etc)the Electoral Roll is completely renewed. In a year of renewal, no names are carried over from the old roll and everyone must make a new application to be included on the new roll.
What difference does it makes?
By enrolling you become a voting member of the Church of England and so help to ensure that all the synodical councils of the Church - the Parochial Church Council, the Deanery Synod, the Diocesan Synod, and the General Synod - are fully representative of its members.
Synodical government gives an opportunity for partnership between bishops, clergy and laity in the life of the Church:
The system is intended to enable church people at every level to be in touch with the Church as a whole and to play their part in decision-making. Ensuring that the laity have their place in every aspect of church life.
