Calvin and the Café Church: Reflections on the Interface between Reformed Theology and Current Trends in Worship

Graham Redding

In a lecture (to the School of Ministry in Dunedin) Graham Redding surveys the varying nature of the Sunday services offered in Presbyterian churches in New Zealand, suggests some of the influences which have helped to undermine its distinctiveness, and calls for a revisiting of the liturgical theology of Calvin and Knox, noting the emphatic approval of the former for “a certain form from which ministers be not allowed to vary”.
