Annual Meetings 2021

Between March and May each year, parishes must host their Annual Meetings*, sometimes known as the APCM.

In line with Charity law, the churches report on the year previous and publish their financial accounts. In addition, various officers are elected to serve in the coming year.

Unfortunately, because of Coronavirus, the restricted capacity of our church buildings means that we cannot host our APCMs in person. Instead, we will host them online using Zoom teleconferencing software.

If you have not received details of the Zoom invitation via a letter or email, please contact us to be sent details.

Even if you can’t be present, do take the time to read the reports (provided on this website as downloads) so that you can review all that has taken place in the last year, see how we are doing financially and (hopefully) be encouraged by the many good things that have been happening.

In each of the churches, we are also looking for new people to join our Parochial Church Councils (or PCC). PCC is a great opportunity to serve the church and to be a key part of the decision-making processes for our community. If you want to be a part of the key discussions affecting our future life, help to manage our building and finances, and get stuck in to seeing things happen, we would love to have you involved. Please consider standing.

St Michael’s Offham host their APCM on the 19th of April 2021 at 7.30 p.m. St Mary’s West Malling host their APCM on the 20th of April 2021 at 7.30 p.m.
