Contacting Church Members.
Availability of contact details
A Parish needs to hold personal details of its members in order to distribute to them information about its activities, and to enable them to contact each other. Under the terms of its Data Protection Policy, which is conformant to the national General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), restrictions are in place on this website to protect the privacy of their personal details from access by the general public. On the other hand, the Church desires to make public sufficient information to make its Christian presence known publicly, and to attract people to its services and other events.
As you are not a registered and logged-in member of this Parish Website, your access is limited to general information about the Parish, church services and other events, and sufficient details to enable you to make contact with the Clergy, officers of the Parish, and organisers of its activities. To Register as a member and Login to the site, use the button at the top right hand corner of each page.
The Electoral Roll
This is a list of church members who, by being included on the Roll, have the right to attend the Annual Parochial Church Meeting and elect, or be elected as, members of the Parochial Church Council and Deanery Synod representatives. It is the nearest thing a Church of England Parish has to a.formal Membership qualification, and members, even though not residents in the parish, can also qualify to act as Sidesmen at church services, apply to send children to church schools, and be married or buried at the Parish Churches . The wider Church uses the numbers of members in a variety of official statistics.
Becoming a member of the Electoral Roll implies accepting a responsibility in corporate worship, prayer, service, fellowship, financial support and sharing the Gospel, so that the Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified.
The current list of members is displayed publicly in our Churches, but for Privacy reasons their contact details are no longer included.
Joining the Electoral Roll requires a signed application form; every six years at the Annual Church Meeting, the Roll is renewed from scratch by fresh applications, and 2019 was one such year. Blank Application forms will continue to be available in Church and for download from here. When completed, they should be passed to the PCC's Electoral Roll Officer - currently Helen Vonka
