Christian Worship Meetings

Meeting together for worship is a fundamental part of the Christian life. It is an opportunity for believers to gather together with like-minded people in order to praise God. This meeting is the most important meeting of the fellowship, so it seems to be important to me that Christians get this meeting right. Continue reading
