The Electoral Roll

If you have settled in with us at St. Catherine’s and made this your church in Stuttgart, now is the time to consider whether you would like to be added to the electoral roll.
This is a way for your to formalise your membership and sense of belonging. It doesn’t invalidate any church membership elsewhere, but it does allow you to vote and stand for election at the Annual Church Meeting.

But you maybe asking – what does this actually mean and can / should I fill out an Electoral Roll Form? If you have a question that can’t be answered here or the form doesn’t download for you please e-mail electoral_roll_officer@stcatherines-stuttgart.de

What does being on the electoral roll allow me to do?
– to attend and vote at the Annual Church Meeting
– to stand for election to the Chaplaincy Council
– to stand for election as Church Warden

Who can be listed on the electoral roll?
– you must be over 16 years of age
– you must be baptised

and EITHER
– be a member of the Church of England – (or a Church in communion with the Church of England) and have worshipped at St. Catherine’s on a regular basis over the last six months

OR
– have worshipped regularly at St. Catherine’s over the last six months and be a member of another church which subscribes to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.

It all sounds a little complicated – but basically if you’ve been happily worshipping at St. Catherine’s for over six months  whether in person or online – and have been baptised – you can sign up for the electoral roll.

The roll is completely renewed every six years to ensure that it is up to date and revised annually in the spring. This is especially important in a church like St. Catherine’s where people move on a regular basis.

So, you are not making a life long commitment, but if you wish to make a commitment to the life of St. Catherine’s, please return your form by 28th March 2021 to
electoral_roll_officer@stcatherines-stuttgart.de
