Great tips, thanks! I would add from a Catholic perspective one additional “etiquette” tip since we have numerous rituals and rites during our celebration of Mass that visitors who are non-Catholic; they should not receive the Holy Communion (Body or Blood) during Mass – but everyone is welcome to come forward with the community and receive a blessing from the Celebrant/Minister (with arms crossed across their chest as an indication they will not receive Communion). Again, it is a personal choice to participate or not, but this is one of the common questions I get and wanted to bring up here. Thanks again and Blessing!

These are great tips. It is so important to be respectful of people’s beliefs, especially when visiting them. I also agree that it is important to ask questions before attending a church of different denomination. Understanding as much as you can before you go, can give you a much more appreciative view of the church and the members there.

Thank you for the help. I just moved to a new area and will be looking for a new church for the first time in my life. I like the idea of asking questions before I go, as you suggested. Do you think it is reasonable to try and call the pastor to get to know him a little bit?

Lately, my heart has been turning more towards God, and so I have been thinking about looking for a Christian church near me. There are so many that I’m going to have to go and check out a few of them before I start attending more regularly. I definitely plan on being respectful and dressing right. Although I plan on covering up my skin entirely, I think that I will call the churches ahead of time and ask them what would be appropriate for me to wear when I attend their services ahead of time.

I like that you provided some Christian etiquette tips when visiting a church such as by being respectful. It is important to be sensitive to other people’s religion and beliefs. While you may have a different opinion, philosophy or belief compared with others, it wouldn’t hurt to show your respect to them just the same. This would pretty much avoid any conflict and help you have a civil relationship towards other people. I would make sure to keep this in mind especially if Iw ere to enter a church of a different denomination. Thanks.

You got when you said that you should consider asking your friend who invited you to their church about the appropriate clothing that you should follow. My best friend is inviting me to attend a Sunday service to the Christian church where she used to go. I don’t want to feel and look different because of the way I dress since I don’t want to be looked at awkwardly. I’ll make sure to consider all your tips.

It was nice when you said that it’s important to wear proper attires that can cover more of your body when you’re unsure what to wear in a church. My sister and I are planning to attend a church service next week. This is our first time attending a church service in a different place, and we’d like to make sure that we will look professional and respected during the service. We don’t also want to violate any dress code. Thanks for sharing this.

I found it helpful when you said that you can ask the friend who invited you if there are dress codes that must be followed in their church. My sister and I will attend a church service next week. We don’t want to look different from other churchgoers so we won’t feel conscious during the service. Thanks for sharing this.
