The APCM has now passed – thank you to everyone who came to the meeting.

This page and the documents for the 2022 meeting will remain available here for reference.

What is the APCM?

The APCM is the Annual Parochial Church Meeting. It is actually two meetings the ‘Vestry Meeting’ when we elect Churchwardens for the coming year and the APCM itself which is the business meeting of the Church – like an AGM.

The meeting is open to those on our Electoral Roll. Those at the meeting appoint PCC members, Deanery Synod representatives and accept the audited Church accounts.

It is also an opportunity to look back at the events of the last year and to look together with anticipation at the vision for the coming year.

Taking part

This year the APCM took place on Sunday 24th April in the hall after Parish Breakfast following the 10am Service.



This year we have several vacancies on the Parochial Church Council (PCC) and a vacancy for a representative on the Tynemouth Deanery Synod

There are 5 vacancies on the PCC.

There is 1 vacancy for a Deanery Synod representative.

If you’d like to stand for nomination to the PCC or Deanery Synod, first check you are eligible.

You will need to:

  • be at least sixteen years of age;
  • be an actual communicant;
  • have been on our Electoral Roll for at least six months
What does being an ‘actual communicant’ mean?

The Church Representation Rules define an ‘actual communicant’ as a person –

(a) who has received Communion according to the use of the Church of England or a Church in communion with it at least three times during the 12 months preceding the date of the person becoming a member of a body the eligibility for membership of which depends on a person being an actual communicant, and

(b) who either is confirmed or ready and desirous of being confirmed or is receiving Communion as referred to in paragraph 1(b) of Canon B 15A (communicant members of other Churches subscribing to doctrine of Holy Trinity).

If you are eligible, please download and complete the relevant form below. You will need to complete the form and also have it completed and signed by a proposer and seconder. Proposers and seconders must also be on our Electoral Roll.

Once fully completed the form can be returned. This can either be sent by email or returned in person on the day of the APCM, as long as the form is received before the meeting starts.
