Worship

A Word on Worship

God has the first word!

Worship is the heart of a congregation.

In worship God gathers us into community, one body - the living body of Christ.

Here God meets and welcomes us.

Here God speaks to us, and feeds and nourishes us.

God washes us clean of sin and death and shapes us.

And we respond with praise and sometimes lament, prayer and silence, and song and thanksgiving through our rich and ancient yet contemporary liturgies, which simply means 'work of the people'. Fed and nourished by God's Word and grace we go in peace and share the good news with those around us.
