To be an official member of any Church of England Church you need to be on the Electoral Roll. This is not the one that is completed to vote in General and Local Elections. This is so that you are able to stand for being a member of the church PCC or other official roles and being able to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (see below).

Below you will find an online Electoral Roll form to fill in. If you prefer to print out the form please click on the button to download the form. This form can then be printed and signed then either posted or scanned and emailed. There are also forms available at church.

Each year we have a specific time period where we update the electoral roll. This year (2024) we have from 13 March to 26 April, but forms can be submitted anytime before then. 

To apply to join the church electoral roll, you must: 

  • be 16 years old or over (although you can apply in the year you become 16 and you can be on the electoral roll once your birthday has passed) 

  • be baptised 

  • either live in the parish or have attended the church regularly for at least 6 months (this could be online)

Electoral Roll form

Your name and full address...

I declare...

1) I am baptised, am a lay person and am aged 16 or over
Select one only of boxes 2A, 2B or 2C.

I declare that the above answers are true, and I apply for inclusion on the Church Electoral Roll of the parish.


  1. The only Churches at present in communion with the Church of England are other Anglican Churches and certain foreign Churches.

  2. Membership of the Electoral Roll is also open to members in good standing of a Church not in communion with the Church of England which subscribes to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity where those members are also prepared to declare themselves to be members of the Church of England.

  3. Every six years a new roll is prepared and those on the previous roll are informed so that they can re-apply. If you are not resident in the parish but were on the roll as an habitual worshipper and have been prevented by sickness or absence or other essential reason from worshipping for the past six months, you may write “would” before “have habitually attended” on the form and add “but was prevented from doing so because…” and then state the reason.

  4. If you have any problems over this form, please approach the clergy or the Operations Director who will be pleased to help you.

  5. In this form “parish” means ecclesiastical parish.
