Everyone who comes along to services or groups at Dronfield Baptist Church belongs in some way, and helps to contribute to the diverse life of the church. Many help with the activities and get involved through volunteering in different ways.
People who are committed to journeying with us as a church are encouraged to become members, being together like parts of a body. Being a member means fostering a sense of care for one another, demonstrating one’s faith with the whole church within the surrounding communities and wider world, and committing oneself to the ongoing discernment of how God is taking us forward as a local church.
These things are primarily done through being in a small group, being part of the Sunday gatherings and contributing to church meetings.
Our Church Members’ Covenant is as follows.
We believe in one God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit and we confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
