Welcome to church! Open Church is a weekly post that aims to be a place where Christians on Hive can hang out, encourage and build up one another, and reflect the love of Christ. The church is not a building, but is made up of people who have been transformed by God’s grace.
Each week I will be putting up a new post with a new topic or theme for discussion. But feel free to come here just to fellowship and be a blessing to one another. Whatever denominational background your from, or if you’re just curious about the Christian faith, everyone is welcome.
So feel free to share a link to your favourite worship song, share a word of encouragement, a prayer request, or introduce yourself.
This week’s topic is: Tell us about your local church
With the lock downs in many parts of the world in recent times, many of us have had to do church online. It has made me think how much I miss meeting together in person. I miss singing and worshipping together with brothers and sisters. I miss praying together. And I miss the fellowship that organically happens when we gather.
So that got me thinking about the global church. What’s your church like? Tell us about your church life before the lock downs happened, or maybe in your part of the world you are still able to congregate together.
What does a typical church service look like for you? Do you get together for fellowship outside of Sundays? If you’re able, feel free to share a favorite song that you often sing in your services. What do you like about your church? And what do you wish could be improved?
I would love to learn more about your church in the comments below.
Alternatively, if you are not part of any church, please also share with us why you decided not to join a local church.
