Explain why the worship you described is important to Christians In your answer you should explain the reasons for the differences between denominations that you have highlighted. When Christians worship they show different types of emotions for example adoration, admiration and they also show affection to god through what they think about say and what they do. If you want to express yourself as a Christian then there are many ways to do this for example praying is a way where you go and talk to god on your own in your own space and in your own time, another example is to sing, which is quite a fun way to pray and talk to god at the same time, more reasons are to be moving and reading prayers together and then you can interact with each other. ...read more.
