About Us

Welcome to the Gathering community!

Gathering Worship is a grassroots online resource by and for worship planners and leaders produced by The United Church of Canada. On our site, you will find a variety of voices, connections with colleagues, reflections on evolutions in worship, curated worship material, and opportunities for sharing wisdom and teaching about worship practices.

Gathering Worship is an extension of Gathering magazine's almost 50-year presence as a gathering of gifts from the church for the church, gifts that come out of lived experience.

Gathering Worship gives you exclusive online access to our current issue of Gathering magazine, as well as over 40 years of inspiring worship resources and tools in our growing backlist catalogue—quality material, updated regularly, to inspire and simplify your weekly worship planning.

Think of Gathering Worship as your virtual desk where you can:

  • search for music, prayers, dramas, and liturgies (by title, theme, author, scripture and more),
  • download complete ready-to-use services,
  • access our collection of inspiring blogs, columns, music files, and explorations on worship-related themes, and
  • bookmark your favourite Gathering resources.
