Annual Parochial Church Meeting

The APCM is the annual meeting of all church supporters to review the past year, including the accounts, and to reflect on this and the way forward. It includes lots of essential admin, especially electing members of the Parochial Church Council, who are the trustees of the church as a charity. It begins with a (legally) separate Annual Parish Meeting (APM) for the election of churchwardens.

In 2023 these meetings will be held on Tuesday 9th May at 8pm, in St John’s, starting with the APM. Everyone who is on the church Electoral Roll or is entered on a register of local government electors by reason of residence in the parish is entitled to vote for the churchwardens. Only people on the Electoral Roll can vote in the main APCM. So this is the time of year when we update our Electoral Roll. The revised Roll is now on display in our churches.

There are two sets of papers for the meeting:

Printed copies are available in the churches, or can be downloaded here.
