The regulations surrounding eligibility to serve as a Churchwarden, PCC Member or Deanery Synod member have changed in the last twelve months following changes to the Church Representation Rules and the Churchwardens Measure (as a result of the Safeguarding and Clergy Discipline Measure 2016).
New versions of the nomination forms are available on the Parish Resources website at: http://www.parishresources.org.uk/pccs/apcms/ The page also includes a revised version of the 'Fit and Proper Persons' declaration which can be done to verify eligibility in place of using nomination form wording.
You will also find the latest version of the forms needed tfor your APCM. These downloadable files are in Microsoft Word (97-2003) format, or in PDF format which requires an Acrobat Reader.

Data Protection forms for Clergy, Readers and Parish Officers
In order to comply with Data Protection legislation the Diocese needs to ensure that all office holders know what data is held on them and how it will be used. We also need to offer you the opportunity of opting out of receiving third party mailings and, for all except stipendiary clergy, having your name and contact details on the Diocesan website.
Form A - (stipendiary and non-stipendiary clergy, ministers in secular employment, PTOs, licensed lay workers and readers)
Form B - (treasurers, SPAs, churchwardens and others on the parish print out)
