What is Worship?
To worship means to ascribe worth to something or some person.
The Christian Church ascribes worth to – worships God.
Worship is the activity of our whole lives. Worship is also central to what we do when we gather.
Churches gather in congregations and very often get together on Sunday, the first day of the week.
There are many ways that Christians share in worship when they get together. Here, at Scots Church Adelaide, we follow a traditional pattern for our worship service which features prayers and hymns accompanied by our pipe organ. We also hear the Bible read and we explore its meanings for our lives today.
Scots, like most gatherings of Christians, is interested in theology: the way we think and talk about the Divine, and struggle to understand what it means to be human.
We are interested too in how we live together in community, how we care for and serve each other, and how we provide hospitality both within our church community and in the wider community of Adelaide.
Scots is also concerned with what it means for Adelaide to be a just, fair and compassionate community and we seek to play our part in that work.
All of these things are part of what we mean when we speak of worship.
