Worship is the “work of the people” of God as one body offering our worship to God who is the audience in our worship. This is the reason, from the early centuries liturgical worship became the way of worship in the Holy Church. Believers Eastern Church adheres to this historic pattern of worship that has been followed and practised down through the history of the church.
Believers Eastern Church’s Liturgy comes from the St James liturgy, which was written by St James, the brother of Jesus Christ, who was the first bishop of the church in Jerusalem. Our liturgy follows a four step pattern: The Gathering, The Ministry of the Word, Holy Communion and The Sending.
Liturgical worship is the primary way that we, as a church, meet with our Lord. Our liturgy consists of a combination of prayers, readings, songs, and sacraments and provide a God-centred worship experience that engages our bodies, minds, hearts, wills and spirits. Each part of the liturgy is meant to draw worshippers into God’s redemptive narrative and into deeper fellowship with the Lord. It brings each aspect of their being into the exaltation of Christ.
