Electoral Roll numbers at St Philip’s have grown by 34% since 2007. In 2013 the Parish was required to prepare a new Electoral Roll. Chris Luxton, St Philip’s Electoral Roll Officer, responsible for collecting information for the church, says “due to everyone’s combined efforts, St Philip’s now stands at 123 people aged 16 and over”.
Although the increase for the three churches in the parish averages 10%, these numbers don’t include the regular parish’s Sunday School attendees, with at least 60 different children having attended St Philip’s alone this year.
What’s the breakdown?
Over half of St Philip’s members (57%) live outside the parish
- There are 82 women to 41 men
- 51% of members have attended since before 2006
Of those who provided their date of birth:
- 26% are in their 40s
- 15% are equally in their 30s, 50s and 60s
- 10% are in their 70s
- 6% are in their 80s
- 4% are equally in their 90s and their 20s
- 3% are 16-20 year olds, on the roll for the first time
