Sunday Worship

There are as many varieties of Christian worship practices as there are Christian denominations, although for most (except Seventh day Adventists) Sunday is their special day for gathering, and for most, the central act of worship will be the Eucharist (also known as Mass, Holy Communion, Lord’s Supper, etc.). However many non-conformist churches, such as Methodist, Baptist and New Frontier churches, will give equal or even greater emphasis to singing worship songs and time spent in Bible reading and exposition.

Many denominations use a prayer book during worship, containing formal liturgy and additional prayers to provide structure and formality to congregational worship. The Church of England or Anglican Communion places a great deal of authority on the Book of Common Prayer, originally prepared by Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556), and its succeeding editions.
