At ChristChurch, all members participate in the running of the church, share in the decision-making process and hold the leadership accountable for what they do.

Anyone who is trusting Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour is welcome to apply for membership. Membership brings the privilege and responsibility of being involved in the life of the church. We aim to encourage all members to know what their gifts are and actively use them.
