Holy Communion Service

   
All are welcome to the table.  All who have been baptised and prepared or confirmed may receive bread and wine.
 
 

Holy Communion. The bread and the wine symbolise the body and blood of Jesus Christ.

The Holy Communion service basically consists of two parts, The Word and The Sacrament.

The Word is the first part of the service. It consists of the following;

The Gathering: Prayers and songs / hymns, including confession, where we acknowledge our sin (putting ourselves at the centre of everything, rather than God.)

The Liturgy of the Word: Bible reading and a sermon or talk

The Sacrament is the second part of the service. It consists of the following;

The Peace: We greet one another and shake hands to show we are at peace with one another

Preparation of the table: Bread and wine are laid out on the communion table

The Eucharistic Prayer: We thank God and remember Jesus' last meal with his friends before his death.

Breaking of the Bread: 'Though we are many we are one body, because we all share in one bread.'

Giving of Communion: People come to the rail by the table to receive bread and wine or a prayer of blessing

The Dismissal: After final prayers, songs and a blessing we are sent back into the world.

 

Holy Communion Services are held on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month at 10am - 11am.

Join us afterwards for refreshments and a chat.
