Archdeacons' Visitation of Churchwardens and Admission to Office
The annual Visitations of Churchwardens will be taking place in May. Under the Churchwardens' Measure, all Churchwardens must be admitted to office annually and by 31st July. It is therefore crucial that all Churchwardens attend one of the Visitations listed below. (Although it is hoped that you might be able to attend the Visitation planned for your group of deaneries, it is perfecty legal for you to attend any one of the three due to be held in the diocese).
