Annual Parochial Church Meeting
April 22, 2018 –
The church’s Annual Meeting takes place on Sunday 22nd April, after the Parish Eucharist (at around 11.30 a.m.). Our hope in scheduling the meeting for this time is that many of those who have come for the service are then able to stay on for the Annual Meeting: please do.
The things we do in the meeting are important for the life and health of our church. It’s the time when we elect the Church Wardens, the PCC and Deanery Synod reps; when we ask you to check that the accounts suggest we are running things properly; and when we review what the church has been doing.
Holding the meeting after the service means no extra journey out, just staying a little longer at church than we might do anyway. There’s also a glass of wine available to help wash the reports down! If you see yourself as a member of St Brandon’s, please come if you can.
If you wish to be able to vote in the meeting, you do need to be on the church’s Electoral Roll (if you want to be elected to PCC, you also need to be on the Roll). This is not the same as the civil electoral roll, and if you have never signed a form to join the Roll, you won’t be on it. Anyone who lives within the parish and/or has attended the church on a regular basis for at least six months is able to join the Roll – contact Carol Beeby to ask how to do this (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Papers will be circulated by email in mid-April. If you think that I might not have your email address and you would like to receive a copy of the papers, please drop me a note (email@example.com).
Hester Higton, on behalf of the PCC
