Every six years everyone in the entire Church of England has to come off the Electoral Roll. It is the law. Wherever you live, you have to apply to re-join your own church!

Why on earth do they do that? To make the roll as accurate as possible and to ensure that those who are on the electoral roll are people you are likely to see in church on a Sunday. When you hear the BBC talking about membership of the C. of E. these are the figures they are basing their statistics on. So, if you worship with us regularly, and are part of the family of St John’s we would love to include you in the new Electoral Roll.
