Annual Meeting and Electoral Roll
The annual meeting of the church will be held on Monday 10th March at 7.30pm.
 
Nominations  for church wardens and church council members will be taken soon.  
All church council members are elected or re-elected for one year at a time.  There are spaces for new members - please consider this prayerfully.  Do not nominate anyone without asking them!
 
Please remember that if you want to serve on the church council or nominate someone or vote in this election, you must be on the Christ Church electoral roll.  If you are not at present on the roll, please see Gillian Corwin, electoral roll officer, for a form and to check your eligibility. Please do this as soon as possible as the electoral roll is closed from Tuesday 25th February.  Thank you.
There is a copy of the present electoral roll in the entrance hall for you to check.  If you cannot get to church, contact the office for assistance (phone and email as above).
Slightly different rules apply for electing the church wardens.
