Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Form A - The Nomination Paper (green) click to download

This document is for this year’s election, making it easier at your annual meeting of parishioners.

Form B - The Citation (blue) click to download

This gives details of the date and venue for the Visitation Service in your Archdeaconry this year. In order to be admitted to office for the coming year, you will need to attend this service.  If for good reason you are unable to attend the Visitation Service for your Archdeaconry please contact your Archdeacon’s office so that arrangements can be made for you to attend an alternative service.

Form C - The Certificate and Declaration (pink) click to download

All elected Churchwardens should print and complete this form on both sides and bring it to the service at which they are to be admitted, to give to the Archdeacon.

Form D - Articles of Enquiry Form (white) for the year ended 31st December 2018 click to download

This is a simple form for you to complete. It is a legal requirement that needs your attention before the Visitation Service.

This form should be completed by you and be brought to the Visitation Service to give to the Archdeacon (please keep an extra copy for your parish records)

In order to lighten the load, it is not a requirement this year that you send in a repsonse to this. However, it is still a useful exercise for your PCC to complete for annual review.


I look forward to seeing all Churchwardens at the Visitation Service.  Refreshments and a Bookstall will be available.  Do please contact me if I can help you at this busy time.

With all good wishes,

Mike Lodge, Archdeacon of Southend
