This article attempts a further analysis of the current liturgical procedure and position of the so-called worship service in the Reformed Churches of South Africa (GKSA). In this article the acts or decisions of at least three Synods of the GKSA dealing with the so-called ‘elements' of a worship service (erediens) are analysed. It is argued that the liturgical procedure inherited from the Netherlands often fails to constitute a real encounter in worship between God and his congregation. A one-sided intellectual and instructional emphasis on the sermon is to be blamed for this failure.
