Membership confers the right to cast a vote at congregational meetings and run as a candidate to serve on the church board. Because we believe that a spiritual commitment to the life of the church is more important than organizational membership, we treat baptism as a prerequisite for membership.
How to become a member:
Membership is open to those 20 years of age and older. If you were baptized into the New Church as a child, the secretary of the church will usually send you a letter and registration form on or around your 20th birthday.
A baptized adult who wishes to become a member may speak to one of the pastors to initiate the membership process. Before becoming a member of Bryn Athyn Church, you will be asked to become a member of the General Church, which is Bryn Athyn Church's parent organization.
