Signing up to the Electoral Roll is a way of saying ‘I belong’ – an act of commitment to the local church and to the church as a whole. It also enables you to vote at the church's annual meeting (the APCM). If you are eligible to join, we would love to encourage you to sign up. To be on St Margaret Putney’s electoral roll you need to have attended regularly for at least the last six months or be resident in the parish. You should be baptised and at least 16 years old.
If you are a member of St Margaret’s Putney and have not yet signed up for the new 2019 - 2025 church Electoral Roll please complete the form below. The Electoral Roll is now closed and will reopen from the 7th of April onwards. Anyone joining after the 13th of March will not be eligible to vote in our APCM this year as the total roll and the names of everyone are sent to the diocese and deanery synod, with the total published on a certificate and displayed in the church.
Electoral Roll online form
The only churches at present in communion with the Church of England are other Anglican Churches and certain foreign Churches.
Membership of the Electoral Roll is also open to members in good standing of a Church not in communion with the Church of England which subscribes to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity where those members are also prepared to declare themselves to be members of the Church of England.
Every six years a new roll is prepared and those on the previous roll are informed so that they can re-apply. If you are not resident in the parish but were on the roll as an habitual worshipper and have been prevented by sickness or absence or other essential reason from worshipping for the past six months, you may write “would” before “have habitually attended” on the form and add “but was prevented from doing so because” and then state the reason.
If you have any problems over this form, please approach the clergy or lay people responsible for the parish, who will be pleased to help you.
In this form, “parish” means ecclesiastical parish.
