APCM and Electoral Roll Forms

APCM and Electoral Roll Forms

 In every parish there should be held an Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM). This meeting should be held between 1 January and 31 May (rather than 30 April as had previously been the case.

All lay people whose names are entered onto the church electoral roll are entitled to attend this annual meeting and take part in its proceedings (no other lay person is entitled to do so).

A clerk in Holy Orders is entitled to attend the annual meeting and take part in its proceedings, subject to meeting certain criteria. The full details of the APCM are found in the Church Representation Rules, which can be found on the Church of England website.


The various APCM and Electoral Roll forms are uploaded yearly (with any year-on-year amendments), to the Parish Resources website - found here. Parishes are asked to use these forms accordingly and to download them directly from the Parish Resources website.

If you would like Diocesan branded copies of these forms, or have no means of printing them locally and would like to request hard copies to be posted to you, please contact Jackie Cox by email (clicking here) to request copies.
