Annual Parochial Church Meeting

Annual Parochial Church Meeting

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) is held each year between January 1st and April 30th.  Anyone who is on the church electoral roll may attend and vote at the meeting.

It is a legal requirement to hold the meeting and certain items of business must be carried out.  These include:

The meeting may discuss these matters and anything else of parochial or general church interest.

Annual Church Meeting

The APCM is usually immediately preceded by a separate meeting of all parishioners.  This is a joint meeting of those who are on the church electoral roll and anyone who is on the register of local government electors for the parish.  This meeting has only one purpose which is to elect the Churchwardens of the parish for the coming year.
