Abstract: This article develops a phenomenology of in-church worship and then compares how people experience worship in-church with worship via television. This research uses a semiotic phenomenological methodology to study in-depth the lived experience of in-church worship. It uses descriptions provided by participants to develop emergent themes and an interpretation of in-church worship. Finally, it uses these themes and interpretation to compare the experiences of worshipping in-church with worshipping by television.
