Admission of Churchwardens 2023
Below please find the dates and venues for the Admission of Churchwardens. You are strongly encouraged to attend any one of the six services. Five of the services will be held in the evening with one service being held on a Saturday morning. There may be the possibility of some online services, but these have not yet been scheduled.
You will need to register online (as you have done in the previous three years) selecting your preferred service that you will be attending.
Book your place
- You can book to attend a service via this link : https://elydatabase.org/swearingin.
This registration process will help the Archdeacons office prepare the ‘signing-in’ registration sheets as well as giving us an idea on expected numbers at each service *(where refreshments are being provided this will be extremely helpful to those churches).
We realise that many of you may not be having your APCM for a while yet but we wanted to give you advance notice of the dates and venues for the services.
