Visitation Services

Archdeacons' Visitation services 2020

To all Incumbents and Churchwardens

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year it will not be possible to hold the Archdeacons’ Visitation Services in church. This is indeed regrettable as we very much enjoy welcoming the Churchwardens into their role.

There is, however, still a need to swear Churchwardens into post. We have agreed, along with our Registrar Lisa Moncur, that this will be carried out via Zoom Webinars.

The dates for these will be:

Wednesday 4 November 11am

Monday 23 November 7.30pm

Tuesday 8 December 7.30pm

Churchwardens will need to book for their preferred time and details of how to do this is availalbe on the Events page of the Diocesan website.

We are aware that there might be some churchwardens who for whatever reason would be unable to access an event via Zoom. Where that applies, please contact Pat Pugh so that alternative arrangements can be made.

The Certificate of Election must be completed in full (including signature) and sent to Pat Pugh c/o 57a Sandbach Road, Congleton, Cheshire CW12 4LH by no later than Wednesday 25 November.

If you have any queries please contact Pat Pugh ( who will be pleased to help. Pat is working from home so please do not call Church House, if you wish to speak to her please email with your number and she will call you.

We look forward to “seeing” you all at one of these webinars.
