  • I think of fellowship as a gathering of like minded people coming together to share news and visit with each other. Church is more structured; and every thing proceeds in a more formal fashion.

  • I agree - fellowship, IMO, is more of a coming together. Its more of a socializing and doing together, rather than the structured, formalized kind of gathering that makes up a service, where you sit in your pew and don't really interact. :)

  • I think a fellowship is when people gather to discuss and do the work of the Lord, and Church is where they meet to receive the Word (more organized and traditional)

  • When I hear "Fellowship" I think more of a group like gathering of people who think or believe the same way to come together for friendship or just a simple exchange of ideas. Church is more of a "lecture" setting, which may or may not be followed by fellowship...

  • Fellowship is more like bible study church is with the peacher lecturing the whole group.

  • Fellowship is more social, while church is a structured service.

  • church is the service done by a pastor, fellowship is where you get to know your brothers and sisters in christ.
