The Secret to Starting Worship Services on Time

It seems to be a universal challenge.  The first song is starting and there are only two rows of people there to sing it.  Or it’s the fourth song and people are still streaming in and greeting each other rather than singing.  Haven’t figured it out yet, but in this video I share a few ideas such as…

  • Some things that don’t help long term (in my opinion)
  • Opportunities to teach your congregation
  • Ideas to switch up your service order

Feel free to add any comments below of other ideas you might have to share!

  1. Thank you Brian. Listening to your tips has been helpful. I am a disciple from Kampala, Uganda who is part of the worship team. I have seen the positive impact encouraging words has on the team just before the service. We also have a 5 minute review after the service of how the singing was during the service. We usually call a disciple from the congregation to give us their honest review.

    Loving these posts on worship ministry… it never ceases to amaze me how across the globe we all face the same challenges in our walks with God. I lead the worship team in Melbourne, Australia and we have a diverse multi cultural congregation so I can definitely relate to the culture aspect.
    One thing we have done recently is start our Sunday morning practice 5 mins earlier and praying together before we practice (easy like a sunday morning) rather than only at the end of our practice… this has really helped us be focussed on what is most important and also more relaxed and happy to be at church early. This has resulted in our practices running more smoothly and then the worship services have been more inspiring and enjoyable for the worship team and the congregation.
    Thanks for sharing these posts.
