Using a method of “narrative communication” that integrates feminist perspective with aspects of narrative theory and Christian communication theory, I look at the significance of storytelling as a medium for evolving inclusive worship. The premise of the research is that storytelling can be an ideological tool to challenge gender segregation and contribute towards overcoming gender and other discriminatory boundaries.
