Once in every six years the preparation of new church electoral rolls takes place, which means that everyone had to come off the roll and re-apply. The next occasion for the preparation of new rolls is THIS YEAR.
This means that EVERYONE who wants to be on the electoral roll has to fill in a form this time, EVEN IF their name was on the list before.
The Church 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 in the elections for the parochial church council and 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.
If you enrol 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, your Deanery Synod, the Diocesan Synod and the General Synod – are fully representative of its members.
You can download a form here.
You can download a copy of the associated Privacy Notice here.
Please return your completed form to the Church by 30 March 2019 to ensure that you are qualified to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting!
St Oswald’s Church will be open
Monday 26 November
Friday 30 November
from about 9.00am to about 9.00pm
for reflection and prayers
with Book of Condolences
Veronica has been in the Chicago area to witness and celebrate the graduation of Dawn Biza as a Bachelor of Arts at Millikin University, Decatur, Illinois. Dawn and her mother Betty were parishioners at Veronica’s former parish of Emmanuel, Forest Gate (London) and have made a number of visits to St Oswald’s.
Veronica met with the Dean of Springfield Cathedral…
… and explored Chicago.
Dawn’s house-mates graduated at the same time.
Anne Coomes and Brian Reader have been with us for some time now, but at a special service at Chester Cathedral they were officially licensed to our parish.
A coach-load of parishioners were able to attend the service.
Eternal Giver of love and life,
Your Son Jesus Christ has sent us into the world
to preach the gospel of his kingdom.
Confirm us in this mission
and help us to live the good news we proclaim,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
