ELECTORAL ROLL OPEN FROM 26 March – 16 APRIL 2023
On behalf of the Electoral Roll Officer, please see the notice below:
If you didn’t sign up last year for the Electoral Roll, yet you would like to be, and you physically attended a service at Centre, South or Holy Spirit in the last six months, you are considered eligible to join the roll.
In that case you can choose to enroll by using the digital form on our appor by completing this PDF form, print it, fill it in and sign it, scan it – or make a picture of it – and return it to the Electoral Roll Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you want to rather mail in the form by post, or do you have any questions, please contact email@example.com for details.
You can find the Electoral Roll Notes below:
- 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 but were on the roll as an habitual worshipper and have been prevented by sickness or absence or other essential reason from worshipping 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.
- If you have any problems over this form, please approach the clergy or lay people responsible for the chaplaincy, who will be pleased to help you.
- Use of email addresses and other personal data is governed by local laws on Data Protection applying to the chaplaincy and by the Privacy Notice on the Chaplaincy’s website.
- Subject to the provisions of the Diocese in Europe Measure 1980, the Constitution of the Diocese and applicable local law, the Church Representation Rules have effect in the Diocese.
This digital form requires an email address. You do not have to provide an email address. In that case, please mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an anonymous form. If you do provide n email address, the Chaplaincy Council and the electoral roll officer are entitled to use that email address to communicate with you in connection with the maintenance or revision of the Roll or the preparation of a new Roll or with elections to or membership of the Council.
The Church Representation Rules impose certain requirements for your name and address to be given to a third party, such as the diocesan electoral registration officer, who may require it in connection with elections to or membership of a deanery synod, diocesan synod or the House of Laity of the General Synod. If you provide an email address on this Form, it will be given to the third party along with your postal address.
A third party to whom your name and address have been given under the Church Representation Rules is in certain cases required by the Rules to pass them on to another person, such as the presiding officer in a synodical election. If you provide an email address on this Form, that email address will be given to the other person along with your postal address.
The roll is published after each annual revision and after the preparation of a new roll. The published roll will include your name (as well as the name of every other person on the roll) but none of your other personal data (as defined by the Data Protection law in place) and will be made public as a result of your inclusion on the roll.
Please Refer to the Privacy Notice on the Chaplaincy App or Website for further information about our use of data.
