Annual meetings

Annual meetings

This Sunday 15 May 2022 we have our annual meetings. These are important events in the life of our church, and it would be good to see as many people as possible come along and take part. Read on to find out more and to download the reports for the meetings.

There are two separate meetings, but in practice they roll together as one.

The Annual Meeting of Parishioners.  Anyone whose name is on the electoral roll, or who lives within the boundaries of the Parish and whose name is on the local government register of electors, is entitled to attend and vote at the meeting. This meeting elects two churchwardens to serve for one year.

Churchwardens, along with Will, are responsible for the day to day functioning of the church. Their role includes, but is not limited to, looking after the fabric of the church buildings and also the smooth running of services.

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting. Anyone whose name is on the electoral roll is entitled to attend and vote at the meeting. Here we hear a report on what has been happening at St Timothy’s in the previous year, have an opportunity to ask questions of church leaders, and  elect members of the PCC. This year there are six vacancies.

Members of the PCC are trustees of St Timothy’s and together make decisions to further the mission of the church. Our most recent meeting included items such as our church budget and the plans to form a joint benefice (which is now a reality). This year there are six vacancies.

If you’re interested in standing for any of these positions (and are on the electoral roll) you can find the nomination forms on the ‘What’s happening’ notice board at the back of church. If you’d like to chat about what the roles are like, please contact Aidan (who is Vice Chair of the PCC – 07515 945536 – aidan.melville@gmail.com) or Will (who, now he is Vicar, is chair of the PCC – 07548 050745 – will@sttims.org
