Here at the High Kirk we count it a joy to welcome new members into the church family. When we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Saviour it is important to find a good local Church where we can feel at home, enjoy fellowship, and grow in the Christian life.
There are three ways of becoming a member of the High Kirk:-
(1) By Profession of Faith
Where church membership is being sought for the first time, first and foremost, if you are not already doing so simply start to attend regularly. Let the minister know of your interest, he will invite you to a series of classes which involves no obligation on either side. Afterwards if you decide to join you would take vows of membership along with others at a church service.
(2) By Certificate of Transference
Any member of a Church of Scotland congregation wishing to become a member of the High Kirk should ask their previous Minister or Session Clerk to send them a transference certificate (lines). This certificate should then be given to the Church Secretary (or the Minister) with a view to your name being added to the membership of the High Kirk. It is of course important that you take an active interest; otherwise such membership would be meaningless.
(3) By Resolution of the Kirk Session
Where someone seeking membership has been a Church of Scotland member but cannot supply a certificate or if they are a baptised member of another denomination, then the Kirk Session can resolve to admit them into membership.
