Electoral Roll – A new church electoral roll is prepared every six years and this happens in 2019. Everyone who wishes to have their names entered on the new electoral roll at All Saints’ must complete a form, even if you have previously been on the roll, and return it to church by Sunday 17 March. Being on the electoral roll shows that you consider yourself to be part of the family of All Saints’ and allows you to vote in elections at the annual meeting and thus have a say in the way our church is run. It does not impose any other rules or conditions. Forms are on the tables at both doors of the church and are also available from the churchwardens and the parish office.
