I'm not sure if there is a difference . I don't go to church at all but I believe very much in God and when I have to pray I pray where ever I am at the time . I think the faith you have in God is only as strong as your beliefs and everyone is going to have a different belief no matter their religion .

They say that the places of worships have some sort of "positive vibrations" which will influence in us and make changes in us too..making us positive to...thinking..deeds etc etc...in one way..right too.. best wishes !

The reason we need to attend Church is so as to be with other people of the same mind set and values,to just pray alone in a garage or whereever is fantastic and can lead to some very special moments with God,but to grow spiritually we need to be united with others of our faith so as to experiance the love and allow others to do likewise so we can all experiance Gods grace.There's apassage in the New testament where a paraplegic is wanting to be healed,he had the faith but not the means to get close to Our Lord,but with the help of his freinds they dug a hole in the roof to get him close enough to be healed{Mathew 9 1-5} so allthough his faith was strong he still needed others who believed also to help him and we find them at church.lol

I think the biggest reason people go to a special place to worship is fellowship. People are social creatures, and they have a need to be with people that share the same beliefs. I do not believe you have to go to the church, mosque, or temple to be a true religious person. I heard once, "Going to church makes you religious about as much as standing in a garage makes you a car." If you believe and have faith in your religion, it does not matter how you pray or where you pray.

there is no difference when praying at home and in place of worship. however, praying at home is personal. the bible itself encourages christians to attend christian meetings (HEbrew 10:24-25), to encourage one another and strengthen their faith (Romans 1:11-12) and to learn and study the word of God (compare Acts 2:42). The word Iglesia (from greek, Ecclesia) often translated as Church, though they have different meaning, means congregation or assembly.
