The Annual Parochial Church Meeting will take place on Thursday, 29th April at 7.30pm. Last year’s meeting was postponed and at this meeting we shall cover the business of both year’s. You can join either in our usual socially-distanced way or on Zoom (watch out for the link in future pewsheet). Please note though that you will only be able to vote in church and not on Zoom.
This is your opportunity to join the PCC and help the Rector and wardens to look after St Mary’s and our congregations. Every year we can appoint 5 members, usually for a 3-year term. If you’d like to know more, talk to James or any current PCC members. There are 8 meetings a year.
We are also electing members of Deanery Synod at the APCM. Deanery Synod elects members of Diocesan Synod, Diocesan Synod elects to General Synod. Deanery Synod meets 3/4 times a year and gathers reps from all the Anglican churches in Richmond, Barnes, Kew, Mortlake and East Sheen. Again speak to James or the wardens if you are interested.
The forms are now up in church for nominations. If you cannot get to church, but would like to put your name forward or nominate/second someone else, please phone or email the office.
