SMIT, E.J.. A few aspects regarding the reformed worship service and liturgical song in a multicultural South Africa. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.1, pp.99-120. ISSN 2305-0853.

Worship originates within a specific culture. Because cultures are constantly changing and developing, the church also has to deal with change in its worship services. In postapartheid South Africa, with its variety of cultures, the reformed churches will increasingly have to take cognisance of the realities and issues brought about by its multicultural context. When focusing in this regard on one of the important acts in reformed worship, namely the liturgical song, some fascinating issues present themselves. It shows that the reformed churches in South Africa are indeed facing exceptional challenges. In the liturgical song God affords his church the perfect gift with which these challenges can be met. If handled in the Biblical way, the reality of a multicultural context becomes an opportunity to witness to the world the forgiveness and reconciliation through Jesus Christ.

Palabras clave : culture; multicultural context; reformed liturgical song; reformed worship service.
