How we worship

Worship is the most important meeting point for Christians. It is the place where Christians become a visible congregation – a fellowship of people who share a faith in God and in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is a place where people come together before God.

How we worship

Every congregation has its own, local order of worship. There is a common pattern, based on the church’s liturgical heritage. We gather. We encounter God’s word. We pray together for the church and the world. We worship God. We share the meal at the Lord’s table. And we are sent into the world. In some services, the order of worship might be shorter.

How is a worship service in the Church of Norway?

Every congregation in the Church of Norway has established a local order of worship. The liturgical tradition is the starting point for all local orders of worship. A regular mass includes:

  • Gathering
  • The word
  • Intercessions
  • Holy Communion
  • Sending

The two main elements in a Christian worship are the Word, which relates back to the synagogue worship, and the Holy Communion, which relates to Jesus’ last supper with the disciples. The order of worship has developed around these two elements. The Gathering points in the direction of the Word, and the Sending leads us from the table of communion out into service in the world. In the middle of the worship service, as a bridge between the Word and the Holy Communion, we find prayers and intercessions for the church and the world.
