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.
