Revision of Electoral Roll
The annual revision of the Electoral Roll has begun. If you would like to have your name included on the Electoral Roll of St. Catherine’s Anglican Chaplaincy, Stuttgart the main requirements are:-

  • you are baptised, over 16, a lay person i.e. not ordained minister within the Anglican Communion
  • A – ignore – because we don’t live in England
    B – an Anglican (which in some nations is known as Episcopalian) who has “habitually” worshipped at St. Catherine’s for longer than six months
    C – a Christian of another denomination who has “habitually” worshipped at St. Catherine’s for longer than six months

It doesn’t matter where or when you were baptised – just that you are part of our church family. Having your name entered on the electoral roll entitles you to attend, vote and stand for election at the Annual Chaplaincy Meeting, but more importantly it allows the formal list of church members to accurately reflect those who actively participate in the life of the chaplaincy.
Inclusion on the electoral roll does NOT negate or require you to renounce any other church membership you may have.
It expires when you move away from Stuttgart / cease to worship with us.
Electoral Roll forms can be found here should be returned to or in church to the Welcome Team by 31st March at the latest.

Annual Church Meeting – 21st April @11:30
Mark your diaries for this year’s Annual Church Meeting and look out for e-mail with more information.

Appeal for a new Church Warden and Chaplaincy Council Members.
Alison writes:
I am proud, and grateful, to have been able to serve St. Catherine’s as Church Warden for six years. I welcomed our former chaplain, Rev’d Kara Werner, to Stuttgart and was able, together with my co-Church Warden, Howard Perry, to hold the fort during the interregnum until Bishop Antonio joined us as our new Chaplain last October.
But now my term of office has come to an end and I would like to stand down.
I hope, and pray, that someone from our community, perhaps a bit younger than myself, will come forward to take on this very important role.

More information about what is involved can be found here and please talk to myself or Howard

There are also at least two vacancies for members of the Chaplaincy Council and we would love to the council to better reflect the many diversities in the congregation.
If serving in this way interests you please talk to the Chaplain or one of the current council members.

We would ask anyone wishing to volunteer for the role of Church Warden or Chaplaincy Council Member to hand in their nomination form before the Annual Church Meeting so that they can be duly elected on 21st April  2024.

Church Warden Nomination Form
Chaplaincy Council Member Nomination Form
