Worship

We are living out Our Calling through Worship by:

  • Different styles and locations of worship
    Open air worship + Forest Church + School assemblies groups — children creating collective worship + Use of stories for all ages + Cafe Church + Stretching people + Testimony + Baptisms, weddings and funerals + Residential Home Services + Hospital Visitations
  • Making connections
    Motivational life as worship + Praying for the community regularly + Welcoming new people to inclusive and interactive worship + Building bridges between Nursing and Care Homes to bring worship to all + Re-emphasising worship — re-evaluating ways and times of worship to fit the setting (mid-week services, circuit services, different and more relevant times)

These responses were from Spring Synod on 12 May 2018, when we met together as a district. During the course of the day we looked at how we live out our faith. We were asked to give examples from our local churches and write them on four pieces of paper titled: + Evangelism + Worship + Learning and Caring + Service
