This will be followed immediately by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) which is for those on the parish electoral roll.

The annual report appears here:
This year’s Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) and Annual Meeting of Parishioners (when churchwardens are elected) will take place belatedly at St George’s Church, Badshot Lea, on Sunday, October 11, at 3pm. This is subject to change if the government makes any more announcements which affect churches.
Given the circumstances and the fact that we are well into the new year this year’s APCM will be a minimal affair covering only those items which have to be covered. A number of reports were written before lockdown and these are available here. Those which were not written will not now be written. The agenda for both the APCM and Annual Meeting of Parishioners, along with the minutes of last year’s meetings are here
All items of AOB must be notified to the PCC Secretary Gemma Brown, email address – by Friday, October 9, at the latest to allow consideration by the clergy prior to the meeting.
Nominations for churchwardens, deputy churchwardens, PCC members and Deanery Synod representatives should be sent to the PCC secretary by email by Monday, October 5. If you wish to stand you must be a member of the Electoral Roll.
You will need to find a proposer and seconder who should likewise email the PCC secretary with their name, address and the name of the person they are supporting by Monday, October 5. They must be members of the Electoral Roll to do this.
Please contact Gemma Brown if you have any problem with this process for example if you don’t know who to ask to be your proposer or seconder. Co-option into roles is also possible in certain circumstances.
We have a huge task ahead running this parish so we need people who are enthusiastic and willing to take on their share of the workload.
We do hope you will consider helping Alan and Lesley in the tasks ahead by taking on some of the responsibility for the life of our Parish.
The APCM is next Sunday (7th April 2019) at 7:30 at St George’s. All members of the electoral roll welcome.
The Agenda and minutes of last year with the accounts and reports from activities are linked below. Unfortunately the audited accounts will not be available on the day, and we will have to adjourn the meeting to receive them at a later date, but those presented to the PCC are below for information.
