Shows that worship that tells the story of God and equip Christians to participate in Godís mission in the world.

In the period of Christendom worship and mission were driven apart to the detriment of the Church's life and witness. With the demise of Christendom there is fresh hope that they can be integrated anew, but this will involve us in rethinking our understanding of both 'mission' and 'worship'.

Mission, in post-Christendom, is emerging as God's own mission in which God is the main actor and into which God calls all Christians to participate. And worship, which ascribes worth to God, becomes narrative-based: it tells the story of God, celebrates God's work past and present, in order to enable Christians to live in hope as players in God's story.

Worship after Christendom will be evaluated not by how people feel about their 'worship experience' but rather by the extent to which worship envisions and empowers them to participate in God's mission by seeking first his Kingdom and his justice.
