Why become a church member?

Church membership isn’t so much about showing up on Sunday or signing your name on a piece of paper. It’s about connecting with a community of spiritual thinkers and healers who are deeply committed to each other and to God. Church isn’t a spectator sport: it needs your ideas, talents and energies. As you give of yourself, you’ll grow. And you’ll feel the support of a church family that is always there for you. 

Listen to Kate Sims, Manager of membership, and Nathan Talbot, former Clerk of The Mother Church, sharing some thoughts on church membership:
