Becoming a member of the Bruton Parish family is always available (whether you are new, transferred, or received) by having your baptism recorded in our parish records. Membership at Bruton Parish Church also brings you into fellowship with our extended family in the Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion.
To become a communicant member, you must have been baptized with water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as an infant or at an age of reason. If you are an adult and would like to be baptized, please contact the Administrative Assistant and attend our “Inquirers Classes” when scheduled. If you have never been baptized or are unsure if you have been baptized, and desire to become a member of Bruton Parish, contact the Administrative Assistant to arrange a meeting with a member of the clergy for a required conversation about the meaning of baptism
To become a voting member of Bruton Parish (and therefore eligible to vote at the annual meeting and to serve on Vestry), one must be a “communicant in good standing,” which requires that you:
- are confirmed or received in the Episcopal Church,
- regularly attend Sunday services
- make an annual financial commitment – a pledge.
For further information on membership, read How Do I Become A Member of Bruton Parish Church.
Our membership coordinator will be happy to discuss with you the various ways of becoming a member and a part of our parish community. If you would like to become a member, please contact the Parish Office.
