URC’s film series concludes with Holy Habit of Worship

band news bannerThe United Reformed Church’s (URC) film series exploring themes from the Holy Habits resources concludes with the Holy Habit of Worship.

In the film, the book’s author, the Revd Andrew Roberts, notes that increasingly there’s a myriad of different ways in which people can worship God, both collectively and personally.

‘Worship is about so much more than the hour or so a week that we spend together,’ he says. ‘It’s actually about the whole of life, about a way of life.’

Explaining the importance of developing a daily, weekly and annual rhythm of worship, the film includes examples how this is lived out.

Rita Griffiths, Mersey Synod Clerk, talks about the Synod’s Café Jam Band which tours the area.

Rita says: ‘Café Jam band travels around different churches in the Mersey Synod and teaches different worship songs, in an evening café style, so that the congregations can learn different songs and use them in their worship.’

The Revd Nadene Snyman, Minister for Christ Church URC, Petts Wood, and Beckenham URC, also explains how Messy Church is a ‘fantastic opportunity to practise all of the holy habits’.

Mr Andrews, goes onto to identify other ways that people can worship God together.
