Revision of the ACB Electoral Roll
Enrolment on the Electoral Roll makes you a member of ACB and is an expression of commitment to the life of our church. It is open to all who worship at ACB (who are baptised and over 16), and entitles you to vote at the AGM, as well as to stand for election to the Church Council.
If you are on the existing roll you do not need to reapply this year. Contact the church office if you are unsure whether you are already on the roll.
Enrolment forms are available from the church office or at church services.
The closing date for applications for enrolment on the Electoral Roll is Monday 3 March 2023
Application for a Postal Vote
If you are not able to attend the AGM in person but are enrolled on the electoral roll you are entitled to a postal vote should an election be necessary for membership of the Chaplaincy Council. This is allowed following a resolution passed at our AGM in 2020.
Please contact the church office for the form for an application for a postal vote. Completed forms may be returned to the office by post or email (Scanned copy of signed form). Completed application forms must be received by 18:00 on Monday 20th March.
