Worship through........

Thank you to everyone who completed the questionnaire regarding our "Worship through...." services over the last few weeks following our General Church Meeting.

A total of 22 questionnaires were returned.

To the question, "Given the reasoning behind having these "Worship through..... services, do you feel that;
a) they should continue as they are in their current format
b) they should continue but with some changes
c) they have served their purpose and should now be replaced with something else. If so, what?

1 person thought they should remain as is, 13 thought that they should continue but with some changes and 3 that they should be replaced.

Other comments included;
The themes should be widened from just looking at worship through art, music and quiet.
These services do not seem to have brought any new people in.
People living on their own, spend time on their own and find worship through quiet, more difficult.
It all depends on who is leading the service.
How about some kind of themed preaching over a number of weeks?
There were some comments about not being comfortable with sitting around tables and discussing with others.
The Christingle service was greatly appreciated
To relate worship to life's experiences.

Other possible themes that were suggested for "Worship through....." included history, poetry, education, technology, nature, prayer, work, science, stories, dance, film and environmental concerns.

At our recent Worship Consultation, we looked at the issue of "Worship through...." and decided to widen the themes over the coming months and to continue to discuss how we can best help our worship life here at church.
