OUR CHURCH WARDENS
At our recent Annual Meetings the following were elected to serve as Church Wardens
Ryhall: Win Peck and Marian Taylor
Essendine: Katy Parkinson
Carlby: Paul Stokes and Leo Shead
The Canons of the Church of England [Canons E1.4 and E1.5] state that churchwardens shall be foremost in representing the laity and in cooperating with the incumbent; they shall use their best endeavours by example and precept to encourage the parishioners in the practice of true religion and to promote unity and peace among them. They shall also maintain order and decency in the church and churchyard, especially during the time of divine service. The property, in the plate, ornaments and other moveable goods of the church, is vested in them, and they should keep an up-to-date inventory of these items, and deliver them to their successors.
