Thank you for your interest in Weltevreden Methodist Church. We hope that you already feel welcome and that by exploring this website you will find all the information you need to make us your spiritual home.
We would love for you to feel like you belong in our community and to contribute to the ongoing life at Welties. If you really want to belong you must move from looking and listening to participating. There is no other way to real relationship and authentic experience.
We would therefore want to highlight the options for belonging with this community.
Methodism has always welcomed ALL people!
“Membership of the Methodist Church is not upon the profession of theological tenets, or dependent upon traditional authority or church ritual. It is based upon a personal experience of our Lord Jesus Christ, brought about by the Spirit… and upon a sharing of such gifts of grace with others seeking or enjoying a similar experience.”
Therefore we simply suggest that if you want to become a member of Weltevreden Methodist, it is because you love Jesus and want to be in relationship with his people here at Welties. That is brilliant, and you are most welcome to be a part of this small piece of a greater reality called Methodism, and an even greater reality called Christianity. We follow Jesus together! We believe, at Welties, that we exist to grow disciples of Jesus Christ to serve the world. If you feel like you can be part of that we welcome you with open arms.
How can we help you to belong?
We feel that a critical part of belonging is being part of a fellowship group. Our groups are designed to help you make friends who will care for you in good times and bad as you share the common Christian journey of seeking the kingdom of God that is reflected in the life, death, resurrection of Jesus Christ, and ongoing interaction with the Holy Spirit. Give us a call so that we can help you find a group that fits.
We also encourage you to join us for a four week orientation process, the goal of which is to better connect so that we can care for you.
