What is the electoral roll?

The electoral roll is the list of people who are registered to vote in church meetings. Joining the electoral roll allows you to take part in these elections, to stand for election yourself, and to vote on any other matters which need to be brought before the congregation.

Who should join?

If you attend St Andrew the Great, considering it to be ‘your church’, then you should join. The more people who join, the greater our voice in the wider Church of England. Our ability to elect representatives to the national ‘General Synod’ depends on the size of our electoral roll.
 
“But I’m not a member of the Church of England!” Whilst you are a member of St Andrew the Great then you count as a member of the Church of England for the purposes of this form. This does not mean that you necessarily agree with everything the Church of England does or says.

Please join the electoral roll to share this responsibility for our church life. Note that to be eligible to join, you must be baptised, aged over 16 (or about to turn 16 - see note), and have attended St Andrew the Great regularly for a minimum of six months.

How do I join the Electoral Roll?

You can join by completing the form below, or by completing a form available in the church entrance area

You are asked to tick one box:

Most people should tick Box 2b to say that you attend St Andrew the Great, but do not live in our parish (i.e. the immediate vicinity of The Round Church).
 
Tick Box 2a instead only if you know you live in the parish.

Tick Box 2c instead only if you are also a member of a non-Anglican church elsewhere (for example, students/internationals who are members of a non-Anglican church at home).

The completed electoral roll will be published for display for not less than 14 days before the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.

Notes
 
1. The only churches at present in communion with the Church of England are other Anglican Churches and certain foreign Churches.
 
2. Membership of the electoral roll is also open to members in good standing of a Church not in communion with the Church of England which subscribes to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity where those members are also prepared to declare themselves to be members of the Church of England.
 
3. If you have any problems over this form, please approach the clergy or lay people responsible for the parish, who will be pleased to help you.
 
4. In this form 'parish' means ecclesiastical parish.
 
* Those who become 16 during the next 12 months may complete the form, and become eligible to be entered on the Roll on their sixteenth birthday. Back to 'Who should join.'
