St Andrew’s, Feniton – Annual Revision of Electoral Roll 2021

What is the Electoral Roll?

The church’s Electoral Roll is the register of its voting members; it is a list of those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting. Electoral rolls provide an indication of the real membership and strength of the church.

Who can be on the electoral Roll?

Baptised adults (over 16 years) who live in the parish, or who have worshipped regularly at St. Andrew’s for at least six months and are committed to being part of the life of the local Church of England congregation.

Why Join?

Enrolment is a way of saying....“I belong”. For us it is an act of commitment to St. Andrew’s Church and the church as a whole. It opens the way for a greater involvement in the life of the church at parish, deanery, diocesan and national levels.


The revision of the Electoral Roll of St Andrew’s, Feniton for 2021 is now under way and will end on Friday 2 April 2021 so that we can display the revised Roll (only names are listed on the displayed version) in church for the required length of time before the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (currently scheduled to be held) on 20 April 2021.

If you are already on the Electoral Roll for St Andrew’s, Feniton and would like to remain so, you have nothing to do. If you would like to be included on the Roll, please download the form from the church website, or request one from the Electoral Roll Officer (see contact details below).

The churchwardens from each parish meet quarterly with our Vicar, to plan the service schedule and to encourage collectiveness. Each parish puts their own needs forward but always with an understanding that we must do the best for the tripartite group and not necessarily what is best for one. This works extremely well and demonstrates the closeness between the parishes.                                                                                          

Across the three parishes we aim to offer different styles of worship at different times, giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy and experience a variety of Anglican worship and to find a style and time that they find most suited to their needs. In some respects we work as a single parish with three churches whilst retaining our own individuality.

The PCC (Parochial Church Council) takes the lead in carrying out the mission of the church – the whole church. Working alongside and supporting the clergy, pastoral care, telling the story of faith, social action and co-operation with churches of other denominations all fall within its remit. In many ways it is the PCC that shapes the health of the church.

Feniton, Escot and Payhembury each have their own PCC. Details of these are given in the relevant section here.

MAP March 2014


THE UNDERLYING AIM OF THE OTTER VALE MISSION COMMUNITY is to support each parish church, and each of our church schools, to grow in, and share their faith in Christ.

THE SIX HEADINGS – PRAYER, WORSHIP, DISCIPLESHIP, TRAINING, COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AND MISSION – and the shared aims listed under each on the grid were suggested by the MC staff and introduced to all congregations as part of the MOiMM process, followed by opportunities for discussion and feedback. These were then agreed by each PCC. Each church was then asked to interpret the general plan in the light of its own situation, identifying particular needs and priorities. It was made clear that not every church will necessarily feel that it has priority action points under every heading, and that those identified may well change on review. For many of the smaller churches, action may consist of publicising provision at neighbouring churches.
