Annual Parish Meeting 2021
• We need to elect our churchwardens, as this election happens every year.
Heather Pascall is willing to continue as Churchwarden and is eligible for re-election.
Justice Konneh is standing down. The maximum term of service is 6 consecutive years. Justice has served his maximum term of service, and we thank him for his hard work in the last 6 years.
We therefore need another volunteer to stand as churchwarden. Please remember that churchwardens are re-elected every year, so please don't feel that you can't take it on if you feel that you can't commit to 6 years, churchwarden is a one year at a time job.
• Please seriously consider taking your turn as a member of the Parochial Church
There are 4 vacancies. There are 3 full term vacancies and 1 by-election for a 2 year term. Those elected to a full term will serve for 3 years. We are grateful to those who are ready to continue to serve and to those who have come to the end of their term of office.
Cassie Dummett is standing down from PCC to take on a different role as Safeguarding Officer, replacing Helena Konneh who is standing down from that. We are also grateful to Helena for her service as Safeguarding Officer, and we thank Cassie for stepping up to the role. Additionally, we require a Gift Aid Recorder – Role description was circulated in the newsletter and available on request. Please consider volunteering for non-PCC roles too.
• A copy of the revised Electoral Roll is being circulated by email.
If you are eligible, but not on the Roll already, your name can be added before or at the meeting.
All completed forms can be sent electronically to: Anne Lambourne and can be put though the door at 59 Gillespie Road, N5 1LH or handed to one of the Churchwardens, or emailed care of Briony Murray at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Sunday 9th May at 4pm. Last year in order to meet the concerns regarding meetings, we held our meeting on Zoom. This year, although things are easing slightly, we feel it remains best to hold the meeting on Zoom again.
We understand that many people do not like Zoom and video calls, and we appreciate that it can be difficult. We do not want anyone to feel excluded from taking part in this very important meeting and if you would like any help at all in being able to take part, please contact the Churchwardens at email@example.com, or Iain McSeveny, who has kindly agreed to host the Zoom meeting again at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that you can also dial into the Zoom call on a normal phoneline, and you will be able to hear and be heard, but will not be visible to the others on the call, please see the numbers that are all listed below.
