Swearing In of Churchwardens 2021


A message from the Venerable Hugh McCurdy, Archdeacon of Huntingdon and Wisbech and the Venerable Dr Alex Hughes, Archdeacon of Cambridge

Dear Churchwardens,

Following the recent round of virtual swearing-in events held in early June, our office is aware that there are some Churchwardens who are yet to be admitted to office for the 2021 – 2022 term. 

A further two “Live” (as opposed to virtual) services are being planned, for Monday 6th September (St Mark’s, Newnham, Cambridge) AND Monday 13th September (St Mary’s, Ely).  Both services will be held at 7.30pm.  For registering to attend either service, please click on the link here.

Please note, additional services outside of these two dates are not being planned, you are therefore strongly encouraged to make every effort to attend either service. 

Please remember that the Office of Churchwarden is an annual office and it is a legal requirement for ALL churchwardens to be sworn in every year by the Diocesan Registrar or Archdeacon. If you have stood down as Churchwarden then please do pass this information on to your successor and ask them to contact our office.

The Declaration form 2021 will need to be completed and returned electronically.  If you have already completed and submitted a declaration form for 2021 then there is no need to do it again.  Please do not post your Declaration form unless absolutely necessary because the Diocesan Office remains closed. If you do have to post your form then please be aware that mail is being collected very infrequently.

Declaration form 2021

  1. Your Declaration form 2021 (which can be downloaded here) will need to be completed and returned electronically. 
  2. Please email your completed form to [email protected].

Yours sincerely

The Ven. Hugh McCurdy & The Ven. Dr Alex Hughes
