The 4 O'clock Service
The 4 O'clock service at Stubbings is structured yet informal, with an opportunity to participate. It aims to explore the challenges of leading a Christian life wherever we find ourselves, at work, at school, in sports and when meeting friends. It will also suit those who have other family commitments on Sunday morning. The service is now fortnightly and takes place on the second and fourth Sundays in each month.
New Electoral Roll
This year we have to prepare an entirely new electoral roll and as a result even if you are already on our electoral roll you will have to reapply. Being on the electoral roll entitles you to vote in PCC and Deanery Synod elections at the APCM and is also a sign of commitment to the Parish.
There are forms at the back of each church for you to complete and give to the Church Wardens or to Gilly at the Parish Office. The closing date for applications for this year's APCM is Monday 1st April 2019. If you are a regular worshipper in any of our churches I'd encourage you to go on the roll.
Husbands and wives should each fill in one please, or, if the details are the same we will accept one form signed by both. There is a legal requirement that the names (but not addresses or contact details) of those on the Electoral Roll be displayed at the churches for 14 days. By applying to be on the Electoral Roll you are agreeing to this and to us holding the data under GDPR rules.
