What Churches Hold Services on Saturday?

Seventh-day churches, such as Seventh Day Adventists, Seventh Day Baptists, and Church of God (7th Day), traditionally hold services on Saturday. As of 2015, a growing number of Evangelical churches offer Saturday evening services, while Roman Catholic parishes continue to have Saturday mass.

Seventh-day churches have services on Saturday, in accordance with the biblical Sabbath. These groups believe that humanity remains bound by the Ten Commandments, including the obligation to observe the Sabbath and keep it holy. However, the majority of other Christian organisations chose to observe Christ’s resurrection on Sunday.

Pope Pius II permitted local ordinaries to celebrate the Saturday evening liturgy. The 1983 Code of Canon Law universalized the practise. Following the custom that a day begins at sunset, the same readings and prayers are used for both Saturday evening and Sunday morning mass.

Due to the hectic schedules of many parishioners, Saturday evening services have gained in popularity in Evangelical churches. Saturday evening services at Saddleback Community Church include the same activities for children and youth as Sunday morning services.

The First Seventh Day Adventist Church in Huntsville, Alabama, like most other Seventh Day churches, holds services on Saturdays. Additionally, it offers Sunday morning services. According to the pastor of the church, the Sunday service is the initial point of contact for individuals who cannot worship on Saturday.
