Sundays at South City Church

The People of God Participating in Worship Together

We stand in accord with the historic Christian Church in our liturgy and worship. Our liturgy comes from ancient texts and the Scripture itself as well as the Book of Common Prayer (originally published in 1549 and rewritten by Thomas Cranmer in 1552).

Liturgy defined is a combination of two Greek words that, put together, mean "the work of the people." At its core, liturgy is the people of God participating in worship together, rather than simply observing worship happen. We participate rather than consume. Liturgy allows us to engage our whole being, heart, soul, mind and body in the act of worship rather than simply sitting and watching.

One of the things we've seen in the modern church, as our society has become increasingly secular, is a misplaced desire to be "fresh" or "innovative." In our desire to be "relevant" we have lost touch with the historical worship of the Christian Church. Proper liturgy helps us reconnect with the ancient worship practices of the Christian Church–worship that Christians have been practicing together for the last 2000 years.
