Electoral Roll Revision

During April and May, we shall be revising and update the church electoral roll (see full details below).

The church’s Electoral Roll is the register of its voting members; it is a list of those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting. Electoral rolls provide an indication of the membership and strength of the church and is a way of saying....'I belong'. 

If you are a regular member of St Botolph's and would like to be added to the Electoral Roll, an application form can be downloaded here.
The form can be completed electronically and emailed to admin@stbots.church. Alternatively, please complete it manually and return to the church office.
