Inevitably, there are formalities with which we need to comply, as well as information you might need
Our Church is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our community. Our policy is set out on our Safeguarding page.
In addition to those on our Electoral Roll, we hold the names and contact details of all those who volunteer to help in managing the life of the Church - mainly those listed on the People and Duties and Rotas pages of this website. We also hold information on those who kindly donate to our Church, which could include their bank account details. In addition, we use a list of local residents to inform them about Christ Church. But we only use the information we hold to help us manage the Church and keep people informed about Christ Church. We do not make the information we hold available to any third party.
If you would like to know what information we hold on you please contact us.
If you would like to have your name removed from any of the pages of our website, or reduced to a simple form - such as Adam B - please contact the webmaster.
The Electoral Roll
We have an Electoral Roll, which is the list of those entitled to participate in and vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting, when members of the PCC together with Christ Church’s representatives on Dorking Deanery Synod are elected and the PCC reports to the Parish.
Anyone who lives within the Parish or is a regular worshipper at Christ Church and is over 16 years old is entitled to be on the Electoral Roll. We are required to completely renew our Roll once every six years, when all
members have to re-apply for membership, and this is the year for renewal.
The procedures, forms of application, timing, the criteria for being on the Roll and the rules for compiling the Roll are all set out in the Church of England Church Representations Rules.
If you are on the current Christ Church Electoral Roll, you will need to re-apply to remain on it and the Parish Office will be writing to you shortly. Be sure you stay on it!
If you would like to check whether you are on the Christ Church Electoral Roll or for more information you can contact Helen Potter, Christ Church Electoral Roll Officer, or the Parish Secretary, Sally McCance, at the Parish Office.
Christenings, Weddings, Funerals and Other Special Services
If you would like to arrange for a christening, wedding, funeral or another special service in Christ Church please contact the Parish Office.
Several links are provided within the text of other pages. These are additional links which users of the website might find useful. We hope they all work, but as organisations sometimes change their internet identities (their urls) it is possible that some might have become incorrect.
We are very grateful to all those who have contributed towards the development of this website; in particular to those who have provided the photographs we have used. We are also grateful to both Pat Newberry, whose leaflet 'Christ Church Coldharbour A History' has informed our Church History page, and to Bill Smith, whose booklet 'Coldharbour A Surrey Village'has informed our Coldharbour and Leith Hill page, as well to the many websites we have turned to for information.
