Mission-shaped worship

Stephen Burns

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    In this article Stephen Burns takes the classical four-fold shape of Christian worship - gathering, word, table, sending - and considers how this shape has been affirmed in the development of modern liturgical resources. Taking this shape as a pattern he considers how it might be used and interpreted in both 'solid' and 'liquid' forms of church, offering many practical suggestions for use. He considers how this shape of worship might be used to nurture a community towards a shared sense of mission.
