Through a detailed analysis this paper demonstrates the usefulness of investigating public worship events as a site for studying the construction of ordinary theology. By identifying the theological narratives being enacting and affirmed by a specific group in such contexts helps strengthen our understanding of the documentary of a specific community. It also illustrates how the particular of a given culture is linked to and used to situate the larger narrative tradition. We suggest more studies of narrative and flow of worship events would benefit Practical Theology to help reveal new aspects of construction and flow of ordinary theology for evangelical and charismatics groups. © 2011 Walter de Gruyter.
