Worship and evangelism in new ‘dark ages’ mission

Sep 10, 2019 by

by Andrew Symes, Anglican Mainstream. A recent piece in the Church of England Newspaper (23rd August, £) reflected on the church’s task in contemporary society. Worship, which is the attitude and activity of glorifying God by believers, should not be confused with evangelism, the explaining of the Christian message to unbelievers and invitation to repentance and faith so they can become part of the worshipping community.

Feb 11, 2019 by

Converts from the hippie culture, known as Jesus People, strummed a chord that would echo around the world. Modern worship was born. In the ensuing decades, the phenomenon known as “praise and worship music” or “contemporary worship music” has seen its share of developments. By no means a monolithic movement, it has nevertheless coalesced into a highly recognizable...
