Register of Vestrymen
The Church of Ireland is democratic in its decision making. At the Easter Vestry, members elect the Select Vestry, Churchwarden and Glebewarden each year. If you are not on the Register of Vestrymen, you don’t have a say in the local Church. The Register of Vestrymen will be revised on Tuesday 20th January, and is open to all aged 18 and over who attend and have subscribed at least £50 to church funds in the last calendar year. The short form to be signed is available from the Rector and Churchwardens.
