St James' Church has its annual meetings on Sunday 23rd April in the Parish Hall starting about 12 noon. Refreshments available. There are two meetings back-to-back. The short Meeting of the Parishioners when Churchwardens are elected, and the main Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) when everything else is discussed/presented, including the election of PCC members. All church members are invited to come and support their church. If you wish to go onto the Electoral Roll or to put yourself forward as a candidate for Churchwarden, PCC or Deanery Synod then please complete an applicatiion form (available from church, or please ask us), read the conditions on it and hand it in. A 24 page annual report is available to pick up as well.
