In February each year under the constitution of the Church of Ireland a revision of the Register of Vestry Members is carried out. The review meeting this year will be held on Wednesday 15th February 2023.
The review of the register is open from 15th January and will remain open until 15th February. It is not necessary to register every year. To check whether your name is already on the register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the parish office on 02892619569.
Being on the Register of Vestry Members, enables parishioners to vote in parish elections, at the annual Easter General Vestry. Registered members of the parish along with officiating members of the clergy constitute what is known as the general vestry.
If you are not already on the register and are a member of the Church of Ireland who is at least 18 years old, attends church in our parish and contributes to parish funds in a way which is receiptable, then you are eligible to be registered.
You can register by completing the form attached or by getting a form from the Rector, a churchwarden or by requesting a form to be posted to your home address from the parish office. Completed forms must be signed and returned to the parish office, 3 Newforge Road, Magheralin. BT67 0QJ or by email to email@example.com, at the latest by 7pm on 15th February but preferably by 12 noon on that day.
