I went on some church visits in Edinburgh today with Dom.  Our aim was to explore how worship is developing in different types of congregations within the SEC.  We’re partly exploring how we would shape an agenda for worship development with our congregations.  I find it surprising that, with all the focus that there has been on becoming inviting churches, etc., etc., there seems to have been less concentration than one might expect on worship.  Our worship is primarily eucharistic.  But that can be a piece of culture which, at worst, defines us on a ‘take it or leave it’ basis.  At best, the eucharist becomes a meeting place for people of all sorts of different traditions and none – and offers the integrity and reality of worship which may meet the needs of some of the people who are searching for the spiritual in our secular society.  But how?
