Abstract [en]

The purpose of the present study is to try to find answers to how active worshipers of different ages experience the praise song as worship in the worship service. What does the song of praise mean to them and what purpose and function it fills. Song and music have always been a central part of Christianity and the Church of the World, and not least in its worship services. If this testifies to the infinite amount of songs and songbooks that emerge because of the church's rich music life. Likewise, singing vocals today is also strongly associated with the church just underlines this even more (Fahlgren, 2013). But what are the underlying factors that matter when singing or playing these songs and what function does it fulfill for the worshipers?

 The method of the survey is a qualitative interview study. The study comprises seven people, three men and four women, all of whom have been active in an Equmenia congregation for at least five years.

 The result shows that the biggest difference in respondents' view of worship and their view of it lies in the age difference. Where the older participants consider themselves less dependent on the emotional touch during the song of praise. And uses more worship to mission. While the younger participants in the study claim to be more dependent on "feeling a feeling" when they worship, and that the songs, should be available to all.
