ELECTORAL ROLL

What is it?

It is a church’s register of electors – members of the church family with voting rights (in a similar way that being on the civic Electoral Register allows you to vote in parliamentary and local elections).

Why is it important to me?

You can of course be a full and active member of the church without joining the Roll. However, it is another important statement of witness and step in discipleship*.

 

It demonstrates your commitment to the church community and vision. It entitles you to vote on church matters, stand for roles of leadership here and opens the way to greater involvement within the Church of England locally and beyond.

What does it affect?

It shows the strength of All Saints’ in the local area and across the diocese. Our representation on church governing bodies depends on the numbers on the Roll. Similarly, the voice and influence of the Church of England in the nation, also depends on collective strength of countrywide parish Electoral Rolls. 

We would love all members of the church family who have made All Saints’ their spiritual home to be counted on the Electoral Roll.

I declare that

*Those who become 16 in the next twelve months may complete the form and become eligible to be entered on the roll on their sixteenth birthday.

I declare that (please tick only one box)

*or would have habitually attended public worship in the parish during the preceding six months but was prevented from doing so because 

I declare that the above answers are true and I apply for inclusion on the church electoral roll of the parish.​
