Archdeaconry of Southwark Visitation Service 2022

Message sent on behalf of the Revd Jonathan Sedgwick, Acting-Archdeacon of Southwark

To: Clergy and Churchwardens in the Archdeaconry of Southwark

Dear colleagues,

I am writing to inform you that the Southwark Archdeaconry Visitation Service will take place on the evening of Thursday 09 June 2022 at Southwark Cathedral. The Registrar’s Citation which sets out the timetable is attached.

Please could you bring the details of the Visitation Service to the attention of all those people who are elected, or re-elected, to serve as Churchwardens this year. It is a legal requirement for Churchwardens to be sworn into office before they undertake their duties.

Please find attached the Churchwardens Election Certificate which needs to be completed and signed following the election of Churchwardens at the Annual Meeting of Parishioners and brought to the Visitation Service by the elected or re-elected Churchwardens.

I look forward to seeing you at the Visitation Service and would ask that you encourage your PCC and other members of your congregation to attend.

Best wishes,

The Revd Jonathan Sedgwick

Acting Archdeacon of Southwark
