MEMBERSHIP - What’s it all about?

The Bible teaches that when we become a Christian, we also become members of "The Body of Christ", which is another way of saying "His Church". We believe that throughout the New Testament there is an implicit encouragement for Christians to commit to a local church - to ‘put down roots’, build friendships and serve God alongside others.


Membership is a way of saying I am committed to this specific local church. We recognise and embrace the truth that all followers of Jesus, together, form the Church with a capital ‘C’! So we will never say that our church is ‘better’ - we are simply distinct / seeking to be true to who God has called us to be.

Membership at Welton speaks of commitment because of shared values, passion, family and a sense of God’s leading us to this particular church for this particular time. It’s saying ‘I love what I’m part of’. We will never push people into membership - this would in fact be the very opposite of the heart of commitment that is freely given!

If you think membership could be part of your faith journey, get in touch with any of the elders or deacons. We’d love to chat and pray with you - email us and we’ll get back to you.

For those who are exploring the possibility of coming to Welton, we’d recommend a ‘Welcome Meal’ - these take place every few months for those wanting to find out a bit more about the church, it’s vision and where you might fit. All over a great meal. Click here and we’ll email with the next Welcome Meal date. For now, here’s a few answers to some common questions people ask…

When & where does the church meet?
Somervale School every Sunday morning at 10:30am and every Sunday evening at 6.00pm at our Chapel in Welton. Click here for a map.

What should I expect when I visit?
A warm welcome! Church for people of all ages and from all walks of life. Some are already Christians, others exploring and growing their faith. Lively worship, great Bible teaching and groups for all ages. Services last for about an hour and a half, and always end with coffee!

What happens to the kids at church?
We have a fantastic range of groups for children and teenagers called Energy Groups. On Sundays, children and youth stay with their parents or carers for the first half an hour, then head to their own groups for an hour. There are mid-week groups too.

Is there a dress code?
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.

Is it all about Sundays?
Not at all! We have many mid-week house groups, children’s clubs and youth groups running. Check out the House Groups page and Children and Youth pages.
