Intergenerational Worship (United Church of Canada)


At its worst, intergenerational services become a congregation’s way to showcase their young people. At its best intergenerational services create transformational experience that people of different cultures can share together.

This webinar defines intergenerational services as intercultural worship spaces, where each generation brings and shares their own cultural learning to the corporal experience. With this understanding, we will explore ways of creating cross-culture experiences in worship that attempt to connect generational gaps. We will explore ways of honouring and respecting this cultural diversity by becoming more aware of the common developmental stages and cultural trends of different age groups within the worshiping community and discussing how this knowledge can be applied to creating meaningful and engaging worship experiences.

Presenter: Alydia Smith
