Annual Easter Vestry Meeting

Categories: News

The Annual General Meeting of the parish will take place in St. Andrew’s School G P Room, immediately following a Morning Service at 10.30 am in St. Andrew’s Church.

This year is a particularly important one, as it is a triennial meeting at which we elect not only a new Select Vestry and wardens for the coming year, but also representatives to the Diocesan Synod and Parochial Nominators with the responsibility of representing us in the process of nominating a new Rector should a vacancy arise.

The Easter Vestry also receives and approves the financial report of the Select Vestry for 2016.


The Select Vestry consists of four Churchwardens (two per church) and two glebewardens. The latter are responsible for care of the rectory (glebe), churches, buildings and land.Traditionally our glebewardens have looked after the day to day care of all of our properties. Churchwardens are responsible for ensuring all is provided for that is needed for the conduct of services, and for keeping order in church. In addition, twelve ordinary members are also elected.

While all who turn up can speak, only those whose names are on the current parish register can vote or hold office.

This year, there will be an opportunity to relax and socialise after the meeting.
