Worship is defined as “The feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity.” Before this course I always thought it was just the slow songs at church that always came before the sermon, I now understand It to be a way of life. King David was an incredible symbol of worship both in his time and ours, and is particularly significant in how we should view worship. The way that we worship, as Pentecostal Christians as apposed to Anglican Christians is very different as they are very focused on works and religiosity do not have as much of a relationship with God.

I found out really that it goes deeper into where the heart of worship really is for the two denominations.

Worship as a church I feel definitely has its benefits, the bible say’s that where two or more people are gathered, the Holy Spirit will be. So in church I am able to feel the Lord moving not just within myself but also within everyone, it makes it feel so much more like a massive family I and I find that really great. I am lucky in that I am at a good church where all the leaders also live lives of worship so the movement and growth of the church is very visible and relevant to today’s
