Apologies for the late post and rushed thoughts…
On Sunday, a friend and I went to visit Hillsong church in Norwest. I’m no advocate for Hillsong but there were some interesting things I learned while observing in their evening service that I feel that we could glean from.
One thing I observed was the amount of organisation that went into one service. I found out that before the Sunday evening service different teams would meet on different days through the week to setup and prepare for Sunday. They had teams for music, for stage, for arts, for admin etc. They would meet, talk, act. On Sunday the teams would meet again and discuss that evening’s plan and the week. Very organised.
Secondly, their use of people and their gifts. At the end of the service, I saw people who were helping and being developed in the differing ministries that they had. They didn’t use just one person for the same ministry, but rotated people so everyone could get opportunity.
Thirdly, the preaching was strangely biblical… That’s all I’ll say
Hopefully we can glean a little from this church.
