St Leodegar’s and St Stephen’s Churches – 6 Yearly Electoral Roll Check

There is a Chichester Diocesan requirement to carry out a complete check of the Electoral Roll membership lists in March. This is for Church business and not connected in any way to civil elections. It can be a lengthy process for those involved so please assist by playing your part at the earliest opportunity, including advising if you wish to be removed or know of anybody who ought to be removed.

In February all those shown on the existing lists will be given a written explanation about what is required along with a new application form. This form should then be completed and passed to the appropriate Electoral Roll Officer by no later than Sunday 24th March 2019. Only those on the new list after that date will be entitled to vote at the Annual Church Parochial Meeting on the 7th April 2019 or hold any form of office or appointment in the churches.

Any new and regular attenders at the churches would be welcome to join, with application forms available at the rear of the churches. You are allowed to be on the Rolls of both Churches.
The Electoral Roll Officers are Jo Williams at Hunston and David Coward at North Mundham.

If you wish to assist with the process, please contact the vicar, the Reverend James Russell.

Apology

I was unable to produce a Pew Sheet last week because my computer needed to be repaired as Windows 10 was corrupt and the pc had to be completely cleared down and reloaded with the operating system and all its applications. Hopefully it will not cause me any more problems!
