Membership

At City Church we encourage those who have found their spiritual home at City, who can agree fully with the statement of faith and respect our doctrinal distinctives to become members.

We have a number of different categories of membership:

  • Junior membership (for those between 14-18)
  • Associate membership (for those already in membership at another church and in Birmingham for a limited period)
  • Full membership.

Members enjoy a number of benefits:

  • They are entitled to attend quarterly church family meetings
  • Regular prayer by other members of the church family
  • Pastoral care through homegroups and the pastoral team
  • Service in areas of church life where membership is required (e.g. serving our children and youth).

We ask members to make a number of commitments:

  • regular attendance at the services
  • by ministering to one another in accordance with their gifting
  • regular attendance at mid-week bible-study and prayer meetings
  • regular private prayer for the work and ministry of the church
  • regular financial contribution to the work of the church in accordance with their means
  • active participation in the outreach of the church
  • attendance of church business meetings
  • submission to the authority and leadership of the Elders
