Erm, 7th Day Adventist services are never held on Sunday, only Saturday! I know - I mystery-worshipped one with Amanda B. Reckonwythe and Pigwigeon a while back.

I was conflating 7DA and mainstream church services for comedic effect. Most of the practicing Seventh Day Adventists I know would never dream of not being at the service on Saturday. That is more of a Sunday lie in thing for the rest of us... [Biased]

Cantique de Wobble:

The choir's yearly rendition of "O Holy Night" for either Midnight Mass or Christmas Day. This is obligatory. The one year the organist suggested that they either eliminate the song altogether or use a hired soloist there was a great hue and cry among the choir members, who would not be deterred from inflicting their off-key ensemble version on the congregation.

Pax Romana

I used to wake up at 4 A.M. and start sneezing, sometimes for five hours. I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness.

A prayer so lengthy and unfocused that it drives all attendees into silence.

Sharing the Piss - Taking the opportunity to nip out to the toilet while everyone's moving around

Te Dium - A prayer that the choir would shut up for once

Praysing - Giving thanks for fine weather. By tradition, this takes the form of a short prayer before everyone processes home to light their barbecues.

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool. - Richard Feynman
