Who is responsible for worship in your congregation? Is it a shared endeavour or a solo venture? It all depends upon the context. Who reviews or evaluates worship? What are the best practices for reviewing the worship service? How do power, privilege, and vulnerability play into the review of worship? Share your experiences (good and difficult) as well as your best practices for the role of worship teams and committees in your community of faith.

Does God Need Our Worship in the Year 2025?

Gathering Pentecost 2 2025
Submit contributions through GatheringWorship.ca by December 1, 2024
Why do we worship? Does it make a difference to God if we worship and if The United Church of Canada worships? Does it make a difference to us and to the world if we worship? What is being born through our worship? What is the Spirit doing through our gatherings of prayer and praise? How are we being born again as a denomination through the act of worshipping God? Share your reflections on what worship means to your life and to your congregation.
