Principal Service

Notice, Principal Service, Custom

From the book The Clergyman’s Hand-book of Law, about Notice, Principal Service, Custom (1): When a rule of a church required notice of a meeting to be given at the principal service, a notice given at an earlier service only, was void.326 But where the ordinances of a church specified that the election of officers should be at least six days before the end of their term, and it became the custom of the church to hold the election on a movable holiday which sometimes was less than six days, the election was held valid.327
