Worship must be in spirit and truth. That is the imperative we must follow in our churches, but we know that what we consider true varies from church to church (and even from one person to the next). So, we find the need to hold the idea of truth in John 4:24 to within the limits of the immediate context; or, we would have to say no one is actually ever engaged in true worship. I go with the immediate context.

The woman's question focused on the proper place to worship. Jesus is showing her it is who you worship that is important. Note the final phrase of vs. 23 - the Father is seeking those whose worship is true. The time of where is past.
