We are required to elect 2 new members to the Chaplaincy Council and 2 Churchwardens.
2 members of the Church Council, Gerd Gebhard and Victoria Hodgson, will retire by rotation, and are ineligible at this AGM for re-election to the same post. We therefore require 2 new, elected members of Council to serve a 3 year term.
The Churchwardens are elected annually. Simon Norcross and Philippa Seymour were first elected in 2015 and are eligible for re-election for up to six years in succession.
The posts of Treasurer and Secretary are appointed by the Church Council. The Church Council may co-opt further members should this be necessary.
