This year we have simplified the request and ask that the attached document is raised with your PCC for discussion.  Please could the PCCs responses be recorded and sent to your archdeacon’s office by 30th November 2018.


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

With all good wishes,


Yours sincerely,

Robin King, Archdeacon of Stansted
