Annual Parish Meetings 2020

St John the Evangelist, East Dulwich

Annual Meeting of Parishioners and Annual Parochial Church Meeting

Sunday 15th November 2020 at 3.00pm via Zoom

This year’s Annual Meetings will take place on Sunday 15th November 2020 at 3.00pm. They were postponed from Sunday 29 March by the Covid-19 pandemic. Following advice from Southwark Diocese, and in the light of recent events, they will be held electronically via Zoom; you can also join the meetings by phone.

There will be two meetings. The Annual Parish Meeting, to elect the Churchwardens will be followed by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting to conduct other parish business and elections. Everyone is welcome to attend both meetings, but only those on the church Electoral Roll are entitled to vote. However, the Annual Parish Meeting is a public meeting so all residents in the parish who are also on the register of local government electors are also entitled to vote at this meeting.

The Electoral Roll has recently been revised and the opportunity to have your name added is now over until after the Annual Meeting. If you wish to check if you are on the updated Roll, it is available at the back of the church. Alternatively you can contact the PCC Secretary or Electoral Roll Officer, or phone the Parish Office (020 8693 3897).

Please note that to be a member of the PCC you will need to have been on the Electoral Roll for at least the last six months and your proposer and seconder must also be on the Electoral Roll.
Those nominated for election must indicate their consent to serve, but due to the unusual circumstances this year handwritten signatures will not be required. Scanned signatures and forms will be accepted.

Completed nomination forms should be emailed to Christine Camplin, PCC Secretary, before the meeting. They can also be posted to the Parish Office, but please allow enough time for delivery.
