ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING. 

This takes place in St. Mary’s Church at 7pm on Thursday, the  20th of  April. The first part of the meeting is to elect two Churchwardens and anyone on the electoral roll of the parishes of Worlingworth and Southolt can nominate and vote for their candidate.  The Parochial Church Meeting follows on, when we hear the Annual  Report on the business of the church, the revised church electoral  roll and the accounts for the year ending in  December 2016. The final part is a brief meeting of the newly elected PCC  to discuss any urgent business and officers  are elected, which is for the PCC members only
