What is 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 can provide an indication of the membership of the church. 

Who can be on the electoral Roll? 

Baptised adults (over 16 years) who live in the parish, or 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. 

I have provide a link to the notice of revision, which will also be on display on the outside notice board outside the main link doors.
