In this article a number of distinctively Methodist forms of worship, which are only infrequently celebrated today, are examined. The eighteenth-century Love Feast, Watchnight Service and Covenant Service are all discussed and anecdotal reflections on their contemporary use are given. John Wesley’s Sunday Service is described as the foundation of much contemporary Methodist and Uniting/United liturgy. ‘Form and freedom’ are identified as the characteristic feature of Wesleyan worship.
