What is Transforming Worship?

‘Worship is the offering to God of praise, glory and honour in reverence and in love.’ It is at the heart of what we do in the church and as individuals. Transforming Worship, seeks to support the whole church in curating that worship. Information about our aims can be found on our about Page

The aims of Transforming Worship

We offer practical guidance and inspiration:

to enrich and inform the practice of worship, both traditional and contemporary, in the Church of England.

to resource congregations, lay leaders and clergy in their understanding of and approach to worship.

to provide opportunities in which different worshipping traditions of the Church can meet and engage creatively with one another.

How we are organised

Transforming Worship is administered by a Council which consists of people nominated by the three founding bodies, and representatives chosen by the different regional groupings. This Council meets twice a year to develop the work of Transforming Worship.

The Council appoints an executive committee to carry out its business and manage its agenda between meetings.

The Chair of Transforming Worship is appointed by the Church of England’s Liturgical Commission, and the Chair of the Liturgical Commission serves as the honorary president.
