Information pack for APCM – Mon 29th Apr

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting will take place on Monday 29th April, at 7:30pm at St James’ Church Centre.

All members of the electoral roll are entitled to attend and participate in this meeting, where we vote for the election of churchwardens and PCC members. This is your opportunity to ask questions and participate in the running of your church community in the Parish of Finchampstead and California.

The content of the information pack for the meeting including the major reports, minutes from last year and agenda can be found below. Reports from PCC committees and Church groups will be on display at the meeting. The Church Centre will be open from 6.45pm to view these reports and also during the Cheese & Wine after the meeting to read and ask questions. The displays will be available in all three churches for a couple of weeks afterwards.

Limited printed copies are being produced, but in order to save the substantial costs of printing all the papers for all the people on the electoral roll we will have only limited spare copies available. Therefore we ask that you please print as much or as little of the paperwork as you would like in preparation for the meeting.
