HOLY COMMUNION

 
Holy Communion, also known as the Eucharist or the Lord's Supper, is the high point of worship in our church. 

On Sunday mornings,10am, we have our service using common worship liturgy. Once a month we have a family service, a chance for the whole church family to learn and worship together. 


What Happens?

At each of our services a priest presides at Holy Communion, normally our vicar, Rex or Sally our Associate Vicar; others may lead the intercessions and deliver the readings. Once we have confessed our sins and heard the Bible readings, the bread and wine are consecrated. You are then invited to come forward and eat the bread and drink the wine.
 
Preparation

The preparation is very important and this should not be undertaken lightly. Prompt arrival at the beginning of the service will ensure you have had the opportunity to do this. But if it is not possible for you to arrive at the service promptly then you must undertake this preparation privately before your arrival.
 
Who can receive?

If you are visiting us and normally receive Holy Communion in your own church then you are welcome to do so with us. Members of our Church are expected to be baptised and confirmed. We do, however, prepare children before confirmation and those prepared also receive this sacrament.
