Definitions of siblings

The definition of a brother or sister sometimes referred to as a sibling:

  • a brother or sister sharing the same parents
  • a half brother or sister where two children share one common parent
  • a step-brother or step-sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage / partnership
  • adopted children

A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.

Worshipping members

For your information, our guidance on the term 'worshipping member' is as follows:

At least one of the parents or guardians of the child is regarded by the priest, minister, or worship leader, as part of the worshipping community at the church or worship centre. This would not necessarily mean that the parent is a 'member' in a technical sense (e.g. through baptism, confirmation or electoral roll) but would imply a pattern of attendance at worship (on Sunday or at other times) that is more than 'occasional' and has been sustained for more than a short, very recent period of time.
