Dear friends and parishioners,

The time has come again for our community to hold its elections, which will take place on Sunday, 3rd October 2021 .

The community of Saint Elias, Reading, is now looking for Parishioners, who are members in good standing, to run for Offices such as Committee Members and Officers.

We want to encourage you to put your name forward, and in this way, to serve our Church and community. If you would like to participate in the forthcoming elections, don't hesitate to contact the president by Tuesday, 31st August 2021.

It is essential to remind you that to both vote and put your name forward, we all need to be up to date with our Annual Church Membership Donations of £30 before the elections. For more information, or if you have not already paid your Annual Donation, please get in touch with our Subscriptions Secretary, Mrs Calliope Jenkins (

Our Church needs our support and active involvement. In this way, we can ensure the survival of our community.

This year, some Committee Members have expressed their decision not to extend their current term.

Therefore, it is vital that if you can offer your help, to come forward, our community looks forward to welcoming you.

With my kindest regards,

Anastasia Hewson
