The Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) will take place on Sunday 30 May, 2021, after the 10:30am service.
This is an important occasion when the whole Abbey Congregation can have an annual review of the state of the Abbey, its ministries and its finance, as well as vote for members of its governing body, the PCC.
Although we expect the meeting to take place in the Abbey, it will also be live streamed for those not able to attend.
To be entitled to vote for PCC members, you need to be registered on the Abbey’s Electoral Roll by the end of April 2021.
Parish of Malmesbury Abbey and Brokenborough Electoral Roll
We are just about to complete a review of the Parish Electoral Roll and currently have 215 members. A copy of the Electoral Roll is available for inspection at the back of the Abbey and by clicking here.
If you have not yet applied, why not join and enjoy the advantages of belonging to the Roll? As well as demonstrating you belong to the Parish, an outcome that has been proved during the Coronavirus ‘stay at home’ guidance is the use of contact details to provide information about Parish activities and the streaming of Parish worship opportunities.
Printed copies are available at the back of the Abbey with the electoral roll or by clicking here.
Completed forms should be returned to the Parish Office.
Not everyone on the roll has provided an email address and not everyone who is on our distribution list is on the electoral roll, if this includes you, please sign up now!
