Worship in Kenya

The Rev R G M Calderwood, MC, MA

R G M  Calderwood, in discussing his own experience of worship in the mission field, regards Kenya as a tabula rasa which allows scope for experimenting.  He points to the African as having “a fine natural instinct” for worship.  Ecumenical influences have also played a part in shaping services.  Printed forms exist and are helpful in curbing undue length (“prayers informative”) and contributing a structure to be followed.  In this respect, the Scottish input has both preserved 
freedom and provided traditional guidelines.
