As we prepare for St. Alban’s Annual General Meeting on Sunday 1 March after church, this is a reminder that your name needs to be on the Electoral Roll if you want to be able to vote at the AGM. Please check the list on the notice board at the back of the church, and if you’d like to have your name added to the roll you’ll find the appropriate form there as well.
At the meeting two Churchwardens will be elected, two representatives of St. Alban for the Archdeaconry Synod of France, and the members of the Church Council. If you wish to run for election your nomination must be submitted in advance. See Fr. Mark for information about how to do that.
The AGM is a good opportunity to find out more about the activities of the church and to share ideas about the future of St. Alban’s. Here are reports from the 2019 meetings of the French Archdeaconry Synod and of the Diocesan Synod.
