Belonging to One Another

Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12: 4-5






    Every Christian is on a journey of faith, some for many years before they come into membership here, and others only for a short time. Some can recall the exact point of time at which they became a Christian, and others may feel that they have had an experience of God in their lives since early childhood, or that becoming a Christian has been a gradual process over time. Different people use very different language to explain their beliefs and experience. Don’t worry, just share your story, and if we need to clarify anything, it won’t be a problem.

    In completing this form, I confirm the following:

    • I will seek to serve Christ within the Church and beyond, and to accept my responsibilities as a Church member as I am able.
    • I agree to the Church holding my personal details as set out in this form to be used within the general purposes of the Church.
