The Church Representation Rules 2011 require that every Parochial Church Council (“PCC”) maintains an Electoral Roll and makes it available for inspection by bona fide inquirers.
A lay person is entitled to have his or her name entered on the roll of a parish if that person
- is baptised; and
- is aged at least 16; and
- has signed the application form in Appendix I of the Church Representation Rules 2011
An Electoral Roll Officer should be appointed by the PCC, whose role is to keep the Roll up to date by making additions and removals from time to time and to report additions and removals to each meeting of the PCC. The Rules require that in the year 2007 and in every sixth year thereafter, a completely new Roll should be prepared. A copy of the 2011 Rules may be obtained from Church House Bookshop, or from your local bookshop.
