April 19th sees the two main annual meetings for St Marys. The first is the "Annual Vestry Meeting" for all parishioners. This elects the churchwardens for the coming year. This is an ancient but still demanding role. Nominations must be received before the meeting and forms for this are available from the PCC secretary.
The Annual Church Meeting follows this when we hear about the church activities for the past year, look at our finances and elect the required number of parochial Council members. Voting in this meeting is for those on the electoral roll. It is a time for looking back - but also forward.
