    We begin with Opening at 9:45 (yes, we still have it!)
    Sunday School begins at 10
    Morning Worship at 11
    AWANA at 5
    Evening Worship at 6:30

    Our services are traditional and old-fashioned to many. We still sing hymns from a hymnal, we stand for scripture reading and use the King James Version in our church. We're an old-fashioned Bible preaching, Bible teaching church and we like it that way.

    8.00am Book of Common Prayer communion service at Crofton Old Church (10th century). Traditional Reformed with hymns, organ and 'thees and thous' liturgy. Four Bible readings + short (15-20 minute) sermon

    9.30am Family Service (communion service once a month) at Holyrood Church: informal, worship-band-led, no real liturgy except a Eucharistic Prayer if we are having communion, long-ish preach/ sermon (c 30 minutes) based on 1-2 Bible readings, children's groups.

    11.10am Service at Holyrood- more formal than the immediate above but less formal than the 8.00am. Common Worship used as liturgical base. Hymns and organ. Either communion service or morning prayer. Four readings + short-ish preach. Older congregation.

    6.30pm Service at Holyrood - worship-band-led, more charismatic with room for extempore contributions from the congregation, but including Bible reading but maybe followed by the congregation reflecting and sharing on the passage rather than a formal preach.

    More details here and here

    Right now, very traditional Baptist. Gathering, Sunday school at 10, service at 11, meetings after (seems like every week). Communion once a quarter, baptisms as they come about.

    That is all going to change, but give me a bit first. Have some teaching and directing to do.

    * Children's Church.

    * Adult Sunday School (for those who attend 1st service).

    Just wondering. What is the difference between your traditional service and less traditional service?

    Although it's in the Polls Forum, your post doesn't have the usual list of choices at the top, so I'm not sure what sort of response you want. Is the poll about music styles, liturgical or non-liturgical, or what? (Not criticizing - just checking!)

    Our campus just has our service at 10 am. The service usually follows this order:

    Opening gathering song
    Welcome and announcements
    More worship (three or four more songs)
    Pastoral prayer
    Offering with a congregational song or a special music
    Sermon
    Closing song

    Our home church has two services, one at 9 and one at 11.

    My church has three regular worshp services (same sermon) on Saturday night and two Sunday morning services. We added a Saturday night service as the other two services were getting crowded. We have since found the great value of the Saturday evening service because there are many people that go to Sat. evening that cannot go on Sun. mornings due to jobs and other obligations. Then we have home team Bible Studies on Sunday nights, Monday nights, Tuesday, etc, various ones on various nights and everyone attends the one home team that best suits them.

    I don't know what a "chuch" is :laugh:, but my church has 10 AM Bible Study (often called Sunday School), 11 AM Worship, then dinner together, and a 3 PM service; that's it for the week.
