The Annual Meetings 2020


The Annual Meeting is normally held before the end of May each year but was postponed this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  The Church of England has stated that the meeting must be held by 31 October 2020.


The Annual Meeting actually consists of two meetings - the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.  The meetings this year will be held on Sunday 18 October 2020 in church at 10.30am.  The attendance at the meetings will be limited due to the continuing need to mainatin 2 metre social distancing.  Consequently a booking system will be needed to manage attendance but this will also enable people from the same household to be accommodated in the same pew - this increases the allowable attendance.  If you wish to attend but are prevenbted from doing so by this limitation, written questions and comments can be submitted to the secretary beforehand.


Please ring 01332 881025 or email info@denbychurch.org.uk to add your name to the list for seats.  The closing date will be 11 October.


A pack of information about the meetings will be distributed to all those on the current Electoral Roll plus other regular worshipers two weeks before the meeting.
