Edict – Electoral Register

April 15, 2021

Notice is hereby given that in view of the anticipated vacancy in the congregation of Torrance Parish Church, the Kirk Session is about to make up an Electoral Register. This Electoral Register is a list of those who will be eligible to vote when the time comes to elect a Nominating Committee, and subsequently in the election of a new minister.

If your name and current address are already on the Communion Roll, then you will automatically be placed upon the Electoral Register. You will need to take no further action.

If you are a regular worshipper at Torrance Parish Church, but are still a member of another congregation, and you wish to participate in the election of a minister to this congregation of Torrance Parish Church, then you should arrange to hand in to the Session Clerk a valid Certificate of Transference before the Kirk Session meets.

If you are a regular worshipper here, and not a member of this or any other congregation, then the Kirk Session can add your name to the Electoral Register as an “adherent”. If you wish the Kirk Session to consider this, you should obtain a form from the Session Clerk, complete it and return it to him before 24th April.

The Kirk Session will then meet shortly afterwards to make up the Electoral Register

Following that meeting the Electoral Register of this congregation of Torrance Parish Church will have been prepared.

If you believe that your name should be on the Register, you can ask for confirmation that it has been included by contacting the Session Clerk Graham Murray. 

If when seeking confirmation you find that your name is not on the proposed Electoral Register, and you believe it should be, you should inform the Session Clerk in writing before the 24th April if you wish to make the case for your name being included.
