The Annual Meeting
7.30pm Annual Meeting
B&A Church on Gloucester Road, St Michael’s, 160a Gloucester Road, BS7 8NT
Please do put the Annual Meeting in your diary. This is a key meeting in the life of our church. We will elect and pray for new members of our PCC. We will thank many people for all they have done in the past year. But most importantly we will look back at what God has done in and through us in 2016 and look forward to where He is calling us in 2017.
The Electoral Roll
The Electoral Roll is the record of all members of our church family who are entitled to vote at the church annual meeting. Each year the roll is revised before the meeting. This year the roll will be revised between the 6th and 8th of April. If you wish to join the Electoral Roll you need to complete a form and hand it in before April 6th. Forms are available at the back of church and can be placed in either the Pray Give Serve box or the Hello box.
Our church is overseen by the PCC (the Parochial Church Council). The PCC is made up of the Clergy, Church Wardens and elected members. Meeting ten times a year the PCC oversees the implementation of our strategy and acts as the board of trustees to our activities.
At the annual meeting we elect the church wardens and new members of the PCC. This year there are the following vacancies on PCC.
PCC Elected Members: 1 space (2 year term) 2 spaces (3 year term)
Deanery Synod: 4 spaces (3 year term)
The Deanery Synod is the council of churches that make up City Deanery in the Diocese of Bristol. Deanery Synod members serve on both their church councils and on this council. Deanery Synod also meets approx. ten times per year.
If you wish to stand for any of the positions available you will need to be on the electoral roll and have nominations from two other members of the church electoral roll. Nomination papers will be displayed at the back of church in the weeks before the Annual Meeting.
Please do chat to a member of the PCC about what the role entails and pray asking God to guide you.
