Annual Parochial Church Meeting 2023

Our Annual Parochial Church Meeting 2023 will take place on Sunday 30 April 2023 at 10.45am.

The annual meeting is an important time to come together and hear more about all that has gone on over the past year. The meeting in April therefore will be reporting on the year April 2022 – March 2023. The meeting is also when important leadership elections take place.

All the papers and reports for the meeting will be available via this web page in advance. If you must have a paper hard copy to be able to access these, please contact the church office as soon as possible to request one.

Churchwardens – Churchwardens are appointed for a period of one year and so have to be elected or re-elected at every APCM.

The role of churchwarden is incredibly important in helping to lead our work and ministry, working with John and the staff team. We have put together some Frequently Asked Questions (see the link below) to explain more about the role and how it works.

As well as wardens, there are elections to vacancies on the Parochial Church Council and to our representatives on the Aire and Worth Deanery Synod (a higher level of church governance).

Please do think and pray about who you want to serve you in any of these posts. The nomination forms for both of these are out now and can be found on the welcome desk in church. Please hand completed nomination forms to John Rainer and speak to John, Viv Brealey or Mike Moss if you wish to know more about serving on either of these bodies.
