Of corse it is OK to weep in church. If it isn't choose another church as it is things like this is what the church is there for. The purpose of a church is to bring you to the feet of Jesus Christ and teach you to walk with Him.
Not everyone understands this. It is simple really. :)

Hello Angus,

Crying is fine, no problem.  I find it difficult not to when in a congregation of people singing in unison, but that also applies to hearing a street band playing, I am just susceptible to emotional responses when I hear the swell of musical sound.

The sweetest times of shedding tears is when reading God's Word, I become aware of God's character, His mercy and grace, and the love that took Him to Calvary, to die in my place: they are tears of gratitude. We are also told that tears shed at times like that are precious to Him too.

So, cry Angus, for God loves you dearly.

In Christ Jesus

PS:
Read John's gospel, for it is made up of witness accounts and testimonials to the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ: written with one object; that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and believing might have life through His Name.

Pray:
In Jesus Name, to God the Father; tell Him of your need of His saving grace, and He will open your eyes  to see, and heart to receive His love and grace.  Though it sounds as though His work in you has already started!  :D

Tell us:
Please, tell us, when you have that blessed assurance. That we may praise God with you, and for you.


Praise God!

I once attended a Methodist church service with a congregation that were on balance fairly troubled. They were especially enthusiastic about waving flags and expectant of immediate divine intervention.
One of the particularly troubled members suddenly burst into tears and left the building, leaving his wife in a state of limbo. Not one person went to his assistance. It was my second service with them.

I reassuringly gave his wife a stern look of urgency as I left the hall to find him. He was no-where to be seen. I went in the direction I thought was best, a shot in the dark. It paid off, I found him.
After embracing him and calming him, talking about his troubles and encouraging him to return to the service, we walked back to the church. My shirt was stained with his tears, I didn't care.

He sat back with his wife, remained for the duration of the service and actually smiled at the end. It made me realise how guarded the congregation were, people freeze when emotions are on display.
Comfort people, help people, don't hold back. If someone wants to cry, let it be so, show others what being Christian is all about. Break down the hardness in their hearts, with love.
