Electoral Roll 

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) takes place this year on 9th April 2019.  
 
This is also the time when we invite members of the parish to add their names to the Parish Electoral Roll and remove the names of anyone we know who has moved away, died or would like their name removed. 
 
2019 is also what the church calls a ‘tear up’ year, when we must start with a clean sheet and update the Electoral Roll from scratch, using fresh individual applications.
 
If you would like to be on the Parish Electoral Roll this year – and we very much hope you will – please do complete the form below or alternatively, download the form and return it to the Parish Office by post to:
 
Great Missenden Church
2 Walnut Close
Great Missenden
HP16 9AL
 
Or if you prefer, you can email a scanned copy of the signed form to: 
 
office@missendenchurch.org.uk
 
This invitation is open to anyone who lives in the parish, so do feel free to invite others to sign up.
 
Children and young people can join a separate register (with parents’/guardians’ permission) by downloading the attached form.
 
Our Electoral Roll is inline with our Privacy Statement and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  If you join the Electoral Roll your name and address will be posted to the church notice boards (but not the website). We also encourage you to let us have your email address, which we may also use to contact you to keep you abreast of the church’s activities and invite you to join in as a parishioner; but this is not a requirement to join the Electoral Roll.

Notes
  • The only churches at present in communion with the Church of England are other Anglican Churches and certain foreign Churches.
  • 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.
  • Every six years a new roll is prepared and those on the previous roll are informed so that they can re-apply. If you are not resident in the parish but were on the roll as an habitual worshipper and have been prevented by sickness or absence or other essential reason fromworshipping for the past six months, you may write “would” before “have habitually attended” on the form and add “but was prevented from doing so because” and then state the reason.
