Overview

When Christians talk about worship they are referring to the practice of putting God first in their lives. This can be done either in private worship or in public worship - eg the Sunday church service.

Different Protestant denominations worship in different ways as part of their Sunday service, but there are also some common features to all. For example:

  • Worship centres on the Bible – reading the Bible, hearing preaching on it or discussing it.
  • Most churches include hymns or worship songs in the service.
  • The Lord's Supper is usually celebrated once a week / month.
  • Some church services have a special section in which children can become involved. Drama, dance or multimedia may be used to bring the message of a Bible passage to life.
