Become a Church Member

Join with over 1,200 evangelical churches and organisations expressing the unity all God's people enjoy because they belong to Jesus Christ.

Church membership

When an individual local church becomes an Affinity Church Member you demonstrate an expression of the desire to identify with like-minded congregations and build gospel unity. Together we can be much more effective at evanglising this generation of people.

The process of becoming a member

Step 1: Make sure you meet our requirements for church membership (see below).

Step 2: Affirm our doctrinal basis.

Step 3: Fill out the membership application form.

Step 4: Once approved by our board of trustees we will send confirmation.

Can your church be a member of Affinity?

We have a small set of requirements that churches need to meet in order to qualify for membership of Affinity:

  • Your church must be based and operating in the UK or Ireland.
  • Your church must have been established in the UK for more than two years, although we may make exceptions if you are a church plant from a member church.
  • We ask that your church agrees with our doctrinal basis 
  • We ask you to support our work with an annual contribution. We suggest at least £1 per head of congregation (with a proposed minimum of £50 a year).

Applications are sent to our board of trustees for review and approval. Final confirmation of your acceptance into membership will be sent to you within two weeks of your application.
