Christian Worship…Now

Designation: PAST 5063

Participants will be introduced to the biblical, historical, and theological understandings of gathered Christian ‘worship’. With reference to history and geography the variety of potential approached will be highlighted before focusing on what is meant by ‘traditional’, ‘contemporary’, ‘blended’ and ‘alternative’ worship. The potential acts and activities that can constitute a worship service and the range of possible service ‘orders’ will be explored. Specific attention will be given to several key practices such as the public reading of Scripture, public prayer, the Lord’s Supper, and Baptism. Through observation, reflection and rehearsal, participants will have the opportunity to design worship services and develop the skills of leading public corporate worship.
