A more meaningful evening service
We inherited the practice of the evening service (evening prayer), and with it the problem of its diminishing importance. Various factors contributed to this state of affairs. Guidelines for a more meaningful evening service, are:
» It must be a genuine church service
» It must have a different character from the morning service, and as such a freer character.
» The form should be varied and can have alternatively different accents: an ordinary morning service, a service with holy communion, a service with the accent on teaching, prayer, song, the main lines of the church work, confession and witness, discussion or fellowship/koinonia.
The watch word is proper preparation, good control, variation and responsibility.
