The parish Electoral Roll needs to be updated in preparation for our Annual Church Meeting in April. If you live in the parish or attend our churches regularly and are 16 or over you are entitled to be on our electoral roll. Please check whether you are on the roll, and if not please fill in a form. Copies of the Electoral Roll and forms are available at the back of both churches.

Our Annual Parish Meeting is drawing closer. Now is a good time to think about membership of the PCC, sidespeople etc. In particular St Agnes Church needs a Warden – Philip Hibbert kindly agreed, last  year, to serve for a year (which has been really useful) but now a new warden really MUST be found.

If you are responsible for compiling a report for our APCM booklet please get this to Paul as soon as you can, and certainly by March 12th.

Our Parish website is being completely refreshed and updated by Judith. There are lots of things on there, including our weekly newsletters, excerpts from the monthly Parish magazine, the full Parish calendar and much more. Please have a look at it, it's free! You can add your e-mail address to receive an e-mail whenever it's updated to make sure you don't miss anything. The web address is leesfieldparish.blogspot.co.uk
