Joining the Electoral Roll

Membership of the Priory Church is based on the Electoral Roll, and gives you, among other things, the right to take part in electing the PCC and Churchwardens. If you are over 16, baptised, resident in the parish or habitually worshipping here, you will qualify to be entered onto the Roll. Please contact the Parish Office for an enrolment form, or you can download one here and send it to the Parish Office or hand it in at church. More information is available by clicking this link


Our Charities

• The Parochial Church Council of Great St Bartholomew (Registered Charity No. 1163024) is run by the elected PCC (Parochial Church Council) & church officers and exists to promote the whole work of the church.

• The St Bartholomew the Great Heritage Trust (Registered Charity No. 283623) is run by a board of Trustees independent of the PCC. It exists to maintain, preserve and improve the fabric, ornaments, furniture and monuments of the church. It is not itself a religious charity.
