How to Become a Member

We encourage attendees of Brookwood Community Church to consider joining. We believe that the Church is a community of followers of Jesus gathered together around common beliefs, seeking to follow Jesus daily. Members of a local congregation, then, will live a recognizably distinct life.

The “Path to Membership” includes attending Starting Point and involves completing a membership application and a meeting with an interview team. Membership decisions are finalized when the congregation meets annually. Starting Point is a one-afternoon class that discusses the Path to Membership and the church’s membership requirements in more detail. Starting Point also introduces the church’s values and strategies.

Dates for Starting Point are announced in worship on Sundays, in the “What’s Happening” column at, and in the Current (a publication distributed to attendees on Sunday mornings). Some future Starting Point dates are indicated on the calendar here at the website. To register for Starting Point, click here.
