Christmas Fair (Lord Mayor’s Day) – Saturday 11th November 2017
Tracey Braddick is organising this year’s St Bartholomew’s Christmas Fair and the hope is that the congregation will offer their support for the Fair. There will be a meeting about the plans for the Fair this Sunday, 23rd April at 13:00 in the Lady Chapel. We hope as many of you as possible can attend. In the meantime, for further information please contact Tracey at email@example.com.
The revision of the Electoral Roll has been completed and is now on the Church noticeboards at The Great and The Less together with a list of names that have been removed since the last revision. Please take time to look at the list and if there are any errors or omissions, please advise Lilian Reid. Please also note that no new names can be added until after the Annual Parochial Church Meeting has taken place. If your name is on the roll then you can attend and vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.
Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM)
The Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) is to be held this Sunday 30th April at 12.30 in the Lady Chapel and will be followed by a Parish Lunch. The Parochial Church Council (PCC) consists of 12 elected members, 4 of whom are required to seek re-election or stand down each year at the APCM. In addition, it also has ex-officio members such as members of the congregation who serve on the Deanery Synod.
The PCC usually meets 6 times during the year. This year we need to elect 4 members of the Deanery Synod for a 3 year period which usually meets three to four times a year with the Lord Mayor attending one of the meetings where a presentation is made to him.
If you are considering standing for election to either the PCC or Deanery Synod you should meet the following requirements:
• Have been on the Electoral Roll for at least 6 months
• Be over 16 years of age
• Should have been confirmed and received communion at least three times in the previous year.
If you meet the above criteria, nominations forms for both the PCC and the Deanery Synod can be obtained from either one of the sidesmen on duty or can be downloaded here:
Once completed these forms should either be handed to the PCC Secretary Lilian Reid or be sent to the Parish Office marked for her attention.
