Every sixth year, instead of revision, a completely new Roll has to be prepared.  2019 is such a year.  This means the existing Roll will be deleted, and all on that Roll will need to complete a new application.  The new Roll will be presented at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.

The Application Form has a new section.  By signing this section of the form you agree that the contact information you provide may also be used to keep you informed about news, events, activities and services in the parish, for example by our clergy or Parish Administrator.  Your personal data will not be used for any other purpose without your explicit consent.

Application forms will be available in church on Sunday 10 March and must be completed and returned to the Electoral Roll Officer by 24 March.  Completed forms may be left at the Parish Office, given to sidesmen/women or posted to the Reverend Roy Overthrow, 19 Bratton Avenue, Devizes SN10 5BA.

The Annual Meeting will be on 7 April, following the 10.30am service.

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting takes place on Sunday 7 April at 12 noon.

This is the meeting at which churchwardens and Parochial Church Council members are elected. Those on the Electoral Roll (see above) are entitled to vote at this meeting. 

It's also when the Annual Report and Accounts are presented and we hear about the whole life of the parish during the last year.  

Do come along!



Living Churchyard


Volunteers are always needed and welcomed for the ‘Churchyard Working Group’ that meets to maintain and tidy the churchyard. If you can spare some time once a month on a Monday morning that would be great. Our next venture into the undergrowth will be on Monday 8 April, 10.00 a.m. – 12.00 noon.
