We know our jobs are important to God. He wants to be at work in our work.
But do our Sunday services reflect that?
Dedicating a service to celebrating God’s gift of work and encouraging working people is a great way to help them make a difference through their jobs. Plus, when we support and equip working people, it helps us all see the rest of our week as worship too – recognising our daily tasks as a vital part of God’s big mission.
Workplace Sunday will help you do that more intentionally.
Many of them simply offer a different twist on one part of a normal service – whether it’s work-focused prayers, confessions and commissions, or suggestions for your sermon topic and song choices.
There are also some new ideas, like doing a ‘This Time Tomorrow’ slot – talking to different people in your congregation about where they’ll be on Monday morning, what opportunities they have for fruitfulness there, and what challenges they face.
The Workplace Sunday resources can be used as a one-off – but the best way to help people grow as disciples in the workplace is to use them more regularly, so your church gatherings are always a support to working Christians. And as well as helping your church better understand and pray for the ministry opportunities workers have, these ideas are a great reminder that Sunday gatherings aren’t ends in themselves – they’re times of building up and sending out.
