What is Sunday evening service?
Sunday evening is like the “family dinner” in a home. It allows a church family to all gather at once for mutual edification and encouragement. (In churches, such as ours, with two Sunday morning services, the Sunday evening services are especially needful in building continuity as a congregation.)
Marrying in church is personal, meaningful and spiritual just as you want it to be. Churches are special and unique places to get married in – the prayers, promises and the whole service of celebration become part of your marriage, on the day itself and beyond.Anyone can get in touch with a church to find about having their child christened. During a christening your child will be baptized with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family. The vicar of each church can approve up to five people to edit a church’s profile. You only need an account on this site if you’re responsible for editing a church’s profile. Find out more.

What is Sunday church service called?
The main meeting each Sunday is called sacrament meeting. This meeting consists of songs, prayers, and sermons (or “talks”) given by different members of the congregation every week. But the most important part of the meeting is when we take the sacrament (similar to Communion).
Sunday, the first day of the week. It is regarded by most Christians as the Lord’s Day, or the weekly memorial of Jesus Christ’s Resurrection from the dead. The practice of Christians gathering together for worship on Sunday dates back to apostolic times, but details of the actual development of the custom are not clear. Verse 10 of the first chapter of the Revelation to John (mid-1st century ad) mentions the “Lord’s Day”; this was subsequently interpreted by most commentators as a reference to Sunday. St. Justin Martyr (c. 100–c. 165), philosopher and defender of the Christian faith, in his writings described the Christians gathered together for worship on the Lord’s Day: the Gospels or the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) was read, the presiding minister preached a sermon, and the group prayed together and celebrated the Lord’s Supper.The Roman emperor Constantine I (died 337), a convert to Christianity, introduced the first civil legislation concerning Sunday in 321, when he decreed that all work should cease on that day, except that farmers could work if necessary. That law, aimed at providing time for worship, was followed later in the same century and in subsequent centuries by further restrictions on Sunday activities. See also Sabbatarianism; week. 4. Home study approaches are often less attended than corporate services. Some leaders have looked to meet the needs listed above by having home study cell groups on Sunday evenings. The statistics I’ve read show that long-term home study groups are less attended than scheduled services. 10. Revival has not come to a country with less emphasis on gathering for the preaching of the Word and prayer. I long and pray for revival in America. But history doesn’t indicate that it will begin in churches that have given in to the lack of fervor of Laodicean-like Christians who are comfortable with token Christianity. It doesn’t come to people who say, “I’m fine and in need of nothing,” but to those who hunger for God and are desperate for His reviving.6. Sunday evening is a unique preaching time tailored for Christians. While morning services tend to have a gospel-preaching emphasis, Sunday evening messages allow greater freedom for strong preaching, concentrated toward people who, by their very presence, have indicated greater commitment to the Lord and a hunger for His Word.I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:—Revelation 3:15–17
I’ve known for some years that the Sunday evening service in Baptist churches has been on the decline. But I read a recent statistic by researcher Thom Rainer stating that only 5 percent of churches have a Sunday evening service. That number startled me.
And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.—Acts 20:7Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.—Hebrews 10:25
What is Sunday called in religion?
the Lord’s Day Sunday, the first day of the week. It is regarded by most Christians as the Lord’s Day, or the weekly memorial of Jesus Christ’s Resurrection from the dead.
And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.—Acts 14:27As I considered the 5 percent statistic, contrasted with how the Lord has used the Sunday evening services at Lancaster Baptist Church, I jotted down ten reasons I believe Sunday evening services are needful. Most of these have strong scriptural support, while a few are matters of practicality.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee…seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God…—Hosea 4:6
Several pastors have asked permission to reprint this post as a bulletin insert. Click here to download a laid out copy of this article, and feel free to print with permission. 9. Having another service time allows for practices and meetings. Admittedly, this is a matter of practicality, but I see it as a needful matter of practicality. Our church choir practices before services on Sunday evenings, and our orchestra practices after church on Wednesday evenings. Other ministries of the church are able to have quick meetings or training sessions at a time when everyone is already coming to church. 7. Sunday evening allows for a full “family-style” gathering as a congregation. Gathering at church is not solely for the purpose of preaching; it is also for the purpose of relationships with a church family. The church is a flock—a group—and we need collective time together. Churches with a strong ministry emphasis in the morning services have people spread out helping in children’s classes, bus routes, and various ministries on Sunday mornings. Sunday evening is like the “family dinner” in a home. It allows a church family to all gather at once for mutual edification and encouragement. (In churches, such as ours, with two Sunday morning services, the Sunday evening services are especially needful in building continuity as a congregation.)
Considering our need for personal growth, the value Christ placed on the church, the price He paid for it, and the commands of Scripture regarding the local church, I believe Dr. Lee Roberson had it right when he suggested Christians need “three to thrive.”
1. People lack knowledge of God’s way. If church attendance were merely a “good Christian activity” to check off a list, one sixty-minute service a week may do the trick. But it isn’t. It is a time to hear the preached Word of God (which has been labored over in careful study) to apply it to our lives. One service a week isn’t much to counter the competing influences of the world’s ways that most Christians encounter throughout the week.5. There is a cost to discipleship. One of the most prevalent—and concerning—reasons churches drop Sunday evening services is for lack of interest. Too many people, they say, are not interested in the added time commitment of Sunday evening services. To me, this indicates a need for Sunday evening services. Committed disciples have never based their decisions related to spiritual growth on convenience.
8. Having another service time allows for missionary presentations or guest speakers. Hearing how God is working in other places—especially on the mission field—is needful for churches, and it follows the first-century pattern of missions.
3. We are commanded to assemble and to exhort one another “so much the more.” The practice of first-century Christians as well as the admonitions of Scripture direct us to more church attendance, not less. The growing hostility of our world toward Christ and Christianity increases our need to gather around God’s Word with God’s people.
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.—Acts 20:28
Personally, I love Sunday evening services, and I know many in our church family do as well. But I believe this service is needful for more reasons than personal tastes. (Not that a personal taste for church would be a bad reason!)2. People lack knowledge of God’s Word and relationship with its Author. Many Christians are biblically illiterate. And in my observation, the percentage of those who are ignorant of God’s Word is much higher among those who only attend church on Sunday mornings.
Having three services a week—Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and a midweek Bible study and prayer service—is a benefit, not a burden, to the spiritual health of God’s people.
Our church family times combine singing, sharing and prayer. We come together at 5pm to lift up our praise to God in song, generally singing a blend of traditional and contemporary music for fifteen minutes. After one of our pastors leads us in a brief prayer, we hear announcements and share matters for prayer from both our corporate and individual lives, including things like evangelistic efforts, special needs, and birth and wedding announcements. We then lift up our petitions and praises to God. Many churches have lists of programs to help you connect with others in the congregation. You won’t find much of that here. Instead, we are an unapologetically relationship-driven church. If you ask “how do I get involved,” we won’t point you to programs but people. In the links to the right, you’ll find the main ways that we encourage newcomers to connect with the people of CHBC, as we seek to live out the relational model of the New Testament church. Once we’ve prayed together, a leader in the church gives a brief devotional on a biblical text relating to the morning’s message. This passage is found in the Testament opposite that preached in the morning service. These talks are weighted toward application in the life of the believer and the church. The service concludes by singing a hymn and reflecting on God’s Word. Fellowship usually follows as members take yet another time to talk and enjoy each other’s company.In addition to our morning services at 9:45 AM, we’ll have evening worship services on selected Sundays at 6:00 PM. Join us in the Sanctuary or via Livestream or YouTube.

Visitors often wonder if children are invited to receive Communion. The answer is most definitely yes! If you want more information about this practice, please do not hesitate to ask the priest. There are also classes for parents and children to learn more about communion.At Communion, in non-pandemic times, you have a choice of drinking from the chalice of wine or receiving by intinction—the bread dipped into the wine. Please consult the service leaflet for further details. You may also request to receive a gluten-free wafer if you are gluten-intolerant. If you choose not to receive Communion, you may either remain in your seat or you may come forward, place your arms across your chest, and receive a blessing. Upon receiving the bread and the wine, the server will say something (usually, “The Body of Christ, the Bread of Heaven” and “The Blood of Christ, the Cup of Salvation”) and the recipient responds with “Amen.”All may receive Communion. We believe that by receiving the body and blood of Christ, one is expressing the desire to be remembered and fed the Body of Christ so that we then go back out ready to feed others by what we say and do.
Can you wear jeans to Sunday church?
There really is no set church dress code, but in general, wearing denim should be avoided. Unless your church clearly states that jeans are OK, it’s best to avoid wearing them for Sunday services.
When you visit St. John’s for the first time, you will be given a leaflet containing an order of service. The service will include prayers by the clergy and members of the congregation, readings from scripture, a sermon, prayers for the church and for the world, a confession of our failures in our relationships with God and our fellow human beings (it’s a general statement—don’t worry, we won’t single you out for your individual failings!), a reassurance by the clergy of God’s forgiveness, the passing of the peace (handshakes and hugs in non-pandemic times) between members of the congregation, an offering of gifts for the mission of the church, the blessing and receiving of Holy Communion, a blessing over the congregation, and a dismissal. At the 10 a.m. service, there will be music throughout the liturgy, and in non-pandemic times, all are invited to join in the singing of congregational hymns. You can’t make a difference in this world without being passionate. The Holy Spirit came to fill us with the love, power, and passion of God so that we can go and make an impact on our generation.

When you notice your brain shifting to work on Sunday afternoon or evening, immediately push those thoughts from your head. Tell yourself that Monday will be here soon enough and you can deal with your work-related issues then.For some people, Sunday Scaries occur because they have a lot to do during the week but are unsure how they’ll get it all done. This is where weekly planning comes in handy. By creating an outline of how you’ll tackle your to-do list, your brain is able to relax. One survey found that 8 in 10 professionals have the Sunday Scaries, with younger generations experiencing them more, affecting 94% of Gen Z and 91% of millennials compared to 72% of Gen X and 69% of baby boomers. Along with having anxiety on Sunday nights, someone with the Sunday Scaries might notice other symptoms as well. Symptoms of Sunday anxiety can range from increased sweating, upset stomach, headache, and trouble sleeping to more severe manifestations such as depression or even a heart attack.While staying busy during the week can help you get things done, if your weekdays are too full, it can lead to Sunday anxiety. You know that you’re about to face non-stop activities and your brain starts to gear up for it.

Workplace bullying is associated with higher levels of anxiety. When you know that someone is going to mistreat you or push you around when you return to work on Monday, it is only natural to experience anxiety on Sunday nights.

If you get anxious on Sunday nights because you dread the start of a new work week, schedule Monday activities that you will look forward to. This turns your Sunday anxiety into excitement as you anticipate the event you’ve scheduled for the next day. Some ideas can include:
If you work from home, separating your personal and professional life may be more difficult. It can help to create a designated workspace for when you are “on the job.” Not going into this space on Sunday keeps your mind off work, also relieving your Sunday anxiety.While these feelings generally begin to appear later in the day, someone with higher levels of anxiety may start to experience them earlier, even upon waking. One way to combat this is to give yourself a little breathing room in your weekly schedule. Leave some open time between meetings or other obligations so you don’t feel as rushed. Also, block out a few nights each week where you don’t schedule anything, giving your body and mind time to recharge. This is why it’s important to make sleep a priority all week long. You can do this by creating healthy sleep habits such as having the same bedtime and wake-up time on weekdays and weekends, creating an environment that makes you want to sleep, and establishing a relaxing nighttime routine.Are your Sunday Scaries triggered by receiving emails, texts, or other work notifications before your new week even begins? While these notifications may help you stay updated Monday through Friday, they can also cut your weekend short, returning your mind to work before your body has to physically reappear.

How long is a normal church service?
Pastors & Clergy On average, evangelical leaders believe sermons should be 30 minutes and church services should be 75 minutes, based on the median response. Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), said, “We all have our own preferences about sermon and service length.

Does your mind tend to race on Sunday nights, causing your anxiety to shoot up? You can clear these thoughts by doing a “brain dump” says Rachel Goldman, PhD, FTOS, a licensed psychologist specializing in stress management and changing unhealthy behaviors.
Some people sleep less during the week, then try to remedy this by getting more shut-eye over the weekend. Yet, studies show that taking this approach doesn’t stop the effects of regularly skimping on sleep.For some people, “spending an hour checking emails or reviewing your upcoming work schedule can help alleviate the ‘Sunday Scaries,'” says Dr. Goldman, “because you know what you’re walking into on Monday.” If this sounds like you, setting aside a designated period of time on Sunday nights may help. Take a few minutes on Sunday night and write down all the things that are contributing to your anxiety. Putting your thoughts on paper gets them out of your mind, freeing it for more feel-good emotions. It also relieves any worries that you might forget something on your to-do list because it is now written down. If you or a loved one are struggling with anxiety, contact the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) National Helpline at 1-800-662-4357 for information on support and treatment facilities in your area.

Take a look at what other people are wearing to give you an idea of what you should and should not wear. While you don’t have to dress exactly like everyone else, it can give you a clearer picture of what is good and what should be avoided.One thing that’s constantly up for debate is whether or not you can (or should) wear jeans to church. Some churches are more casual than others, and some allow you to wear whatever you want on certain days or nights.
Read on to discover a few helpful hints and tips that will ensure you look your best while feeling confident and putting your best church-going foot forward.
From shrugs and shawls to beautiful jewelry, knowing how to dress for church will make you feel more confident whenever you attend. Ask your church about their particular dress code so you can make sure you’re staying within their guidelines.When it comes to earrings, keep it simple with studs or small pearls. Stay away from earrings that are too long or too full of shimmering stones and save those for formal events or a night out at the club.Depending on the church you attend, you may go to evening services or services that are held during the week. In those cases, jeans might be acceptible but wearing them on Sunday mornings is usually not recommended.If you want to know how to dress for church, something modest and comfortable should be fine. Generally, graphic tees that show off sports team logos or bands should never be worn to church.
You can make any church attire look more refined with the right pieces of jewelry. Layer slender chain necklaces over a dress shirt or sweater to give your ensemble a pop of pizzazz.
Shawls always look fabulous over anything you wear and they can add a nice layer to your dress to give your look more texture. They’re also a wonderful option for chilly days where you don’t want to wear anything too heavy that will make you feel overheated.There really is no set church dress code, but in general, wearing denim should be avoided. Unless your church clearly states that jeans are OK, it’s best to avoid wearing them for Sunday services.All jewelry that you wear to church should be subtle and tasteful. A pair of hoop earrings look beautiful with almost anything and will give your outfit a nice touch without being overbearing.
Remember that God loves you no matter what you wear, and modern churches are making jeans more acceptible. If your church leaders are wearing jeans, then you can probably wear them, too.

Bracelets can also enhance your Sunday attire, but they should either match your necklace or coordinate with the colors you’re wearing. Avoid sporting large, clunky acrylic bracelets, braided friendship braces, and anything made in a loud color that could be distracting and clash with your other clothing.
Baseball caps should not be worn to church, however, a stylish tailored hat is usually fine. When it comes to shoes, try not to wear heels that are too high. Instead, stick with flats or kitten heels for a much more tasteful look.One church staple that never goes out of style is a classic pearl necklace. These shimmering pieces of jewelry are timeless, beautiful, and add a gorgeous touch to your look without being too showy.Visit our website to browse our incredible selection of beautiful jewelry and read our blog for amazing tips about choosing the perfect jewelry for your needs.
Tennis shoes may be alright for certain church events but during Sunday services, some form of dress shoes should be worn. Women may wear dress pants to church, but leggings and skinny jeans are not usually a good choice.
Solid-colored tops are fine, and even something with a pattern should be OK to wear. Anything with wording or obnoxious sayings should not be worn to church.Sleeveless tops and dresses aren’t always appropriate for church ceremonies and events. If you’re worried about getting chilly, drape a stylish shawl over your shoulders to keep you cozy.
Collect a variety of shrugs and shawls in different colors and designs. This will make it easy to change up your looks every week if you have a favorite dress. Just layer your shawl over a black dress or a dressy shirt, and you’ve got a completely different look than you had last Sunday!

While the extra services are not commanded in scripture, they surely have its blessings. The apostolic church often met on a daily basis: “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ” (Acts 5:42). Hebrews 10:25 tells us, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Therefore, the closer we get to the end of this age, the more often we should meet together as a church. Perhaps it is time to add a new one. Thanks for this interesting question.

According to the “Dictionary of Christianity in America,” the Puritans of the 1600’s in America had a Sunday morning and a Sunday evening gathering time as well as a Thursday morning lecture. These practices almost certainly go back to the Puritans in England.
The mid-week meeting had its beginnings in prayer meetings that were occasionally mentioned before 1800 but became popular through the efforts of Charles Finney and D. L. Moody in the 1800’s. Moody held noon prayer meetings in conjunction with his preaching campaigns. During the years 1857-1858, an awakening occurred that was later called the Prayer Meeting Revival. By 1900, prayer meetings or mid-week services became common in most evangelistic and many Protestant churches. By the mid-1900’s, the prayer emphasis of the mid-week service was often replaced by a teaching or preaching service.The congregation offers many opportunities for people to get involved such as Bible studies, youth group meetings, community outreach projects like food pantries and homeless shelters; there are also special events throughout the year such as their annual summer picnic where you can meet new people from all walks of life!
