COMING UP

PASSOVER MEAL RE-ENACTMENT AND REFLECTION – Maundy Thursday in the John Owen Barn –
Evening Event. We are delighted that Kevin and Rosie Lewis are leading us through an evening of insight and reflection. They will talk through how the Passover meal would have been celebrated in Jesus’ day. It will be a traditional evening of Passover food and hymns. This will be a wonderful way to consider how our Lord celebrated Passover with his disciples the evening before his death and help us understand what he was saying at the Last Supper. This will be a ticketed event – £2 –
which will be available each Sunday leading up to the event and in the church office.

NEW ELECTORAL ROLL

The Electoral Roll is a list of the names and addresses of every person who can vote in the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) which will be held on Sunday, 28th April. This year we are required to form a new Electoral Roll rather than just amend the current Roll. This will require everyone who is currently on the Electoral Roll and wishes to remain on the Roll to re-register. If you have not previously been on the Electoral Roll and would like to be, the criteria are:

  • Baptised and aged at least 16 years old
  • Either live in the parish or have worshipped at the Church regularly for at least 6 months
  • A member of the Church of England or any church that is ‘in common’ with the Church of England

Whether registering for the first time or re-registering, the form is the same and is available at the back of the Church. Please complete it as soon as possible and place it in the donations box. If you have any questions please speak to John Bradley, Electoral Roll Officer. All forms MUST BE COMPLETED AND RETURNED BY MONDAY 1st APRIL 2019.
