Registration is open Sunday at 1 pm – midnight Thursday

We're eager to meet in person, but how we do church onsite will be different from what we're accustomed to as we follow recommended guidelines. We realize you may not feel you need these precautions for yourself, but let’s all take this opportunity to consider the needs of those around us, and support each other in unity.

And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. Colossians 3:15 (NLT)

How and When to Reserve your Seats

  1. Registration for Sunday services will open the prior Sunday at 1 pm and close Thursday at midnight so we can prepare for services. You can find a link at the top of this page, at brookwoodchurch.org/events, the homepage of this website, and on the Brookwood Church app once registrations open on May 31 at 1 pm.
