Becoming a member is a great way to ratify a heart commitment that already exists between us. It’s the biblical way to express love, commitment and belonging to the church family
Membership at One Church is the best way that someone can express, "This is my home". Membership is also a way in which you can identify yourself to the pastors as belonging to the group for which they are responsible and accountable before God. It is a practical way for church leaders to identify the church body, for example when it comes to practical matters such as voting on elders.

We also have a number of 'Welcome Home' events throughout the year. These provide a no-obligation opportunity for you to hear more about who we are and what makes us tick, as well as meet the leaders and put any questions to us as you explore what partnership with us looks like. It's also a great chance for us to get to know you.
“Each part gets its meaning from the body as a whole, not the other way around. The body we’re talking about is Christ’s body of chosen people. Each of us finds our meaning and function as a part of his body. But as a chopped-off finger or cut-off toe we wouldn’t amount to much, would we?” Romans 12:4-5, The Message
