Evening Service
For many years the evening service of the Afrikaans speaking churches has been unsuccessful as far as attendances are concerned. Many endeavours to improve this have failed. This study is an attempt to argue that the Bible and history do not insist on an evening meeting of the church on Sunday, especially not as a second service. In the light of biblical and historical facts the problem of the evening service could be resolved if, in every parish, there were a service on Sunday as well as o th e r types of gatherings, including an educational meeting, which could be held at different times, according to local demands.
