Being a Christian is about more than ‘going to church’. It’s actually about worshipping God, showing in our lives that He is the most important thing.
The great thing about worship is Christians do it anywhere, anytime – even through our work, art and culture.

Connecting what you do at work with God’s plan for the world.
