Worship and Praise
What does it mean to Worship?
Worship is an essential part of the Christian’s faith. Christians worship God to thank him for his love, ask for forgiveness for their sins and try to understand his will for them. It is the action of granting God the adoration, reverence, and homage, that he is due, whilst expressing God’s holiness, goodness, and power. Worship is also a way to express love for God.

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Psalm 105:1
There are many examples in scripture about worship and Christian worship takes the form of many different practices, lifestyle, and events. It is both individual and congregated. Public worship focuses on praising God through prayer, preaching, Bible reading, music, and in the Holy Communion service where people receive the bread and wine. This is liturgical worship, the words and actions to be followed are often set out in a booklet to make it easy for all to follow. There are a variety of services including Morning and Evening prayer, the Eucharist or Holy Communion, Service of the Word or Holy Sacraments - baptism and wedding.
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness,
bow down before him, his glory proclaim;
with gold of obedience and incense of lowliness,
kneel and adore him the Lord is his name. J.S.B.M Monsell
Many people approach church with preconceived ideas or expectations about what makes an excellent service and that is why it’s important to feel comfortable with style of worship at the church you attend. The people sitting in church each week are crying out to be moved, inspired, challenged, touched, convicted, forgiven, stretched, and surprised but it’s impossible to this in one service. For this reason many churches including my own hold a variety of church services following different styles that address the needs of different people through the seasons and at different times in their life.

Through this website I will try to share my views and experiences of Meeting God in the Everyday.
I am a wife, sister, friend and in the past I have been a nurse in the NHS, an Acupuncturist and since 2014 I've been an ordained minister in the Church of England. At the moment I am the vicar of four rural parishes in South Warwickshire.
