    Important announcement - ELECTORAL ROLL Update

    As with all churches, we need to produce a new Electoral Roll every 6 years.  St. John's is due to be completed in February 2019 and all Church members need to register. The Church’s Electoral Roll is the register of its voting members. It is a list of those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting and provides an indication of the real membership and strength of the church.

    Please register from Sunday 13th January by completing the form available here, also available at the back of church, or from the Parish Office. Completed forms must be returned to Jean Spencer or the Parish Office by the 17th February latest. 

    If you have any problems with the form please approach Jean Spencer, Electoral Roll Officer, responsible for the parish, who will be pleased to help you (direct or via Parish Office).
