This involves a set format eg- at a church this could consist of some hymns or songs and a set number of bible reading , meditations and icons
Private worship gives Christians a chance to spend time alone with God. Prayer, meditation, Bible study and singing hymns may all be done at home. Christians can unite themselves with the Church of God as they pray while not actually going to a physical church.
Most Christians use the Bible in private worship.
Non- Liturgical Worship
This is where there is no set structure to a worship or where it may be spontaneous
Individual decides to worship god through song, or prayer.

May not teach Bible because they arent rooted in tradition.
