Holy Communion

This morning let us, though separated by distance, share in the act that binds Christians together all around the world. 

This is a "self-service" communion. It would be good if you have bread to break, and grape juice or other suitable liquid to drink. Where there is more than one person present, you might like to serve each other.

A "self-service" Holy Communion

You may like to play the following music while following the order below.

This act is called by many names, the Eucharist, The Lord’s supper, Holy Communion, it is a simple but highly symbolic meal.   A re-enactment of the meal that Jesus shared with his disciples before he was arrested, tried, and crucified.    In order to do that this morning it would be great if you have bread to break and some juice of the grape.   Let us share in a moment of quietness as we prepare for that.

Paul in 1 Corinthians guides our thoughts: 

For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you.   Do this in remembrance of me”.    

In the same way he took the up also, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood.  Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”  

So then let us draw near in faith and share in this sacrament remembering that Christ died for us.   Feed on him in your hearts with thanksgiving

Sisters and brothers in Christ



The bread which we break is a sharing in the body of Christ.



The wine which we have poured is a sharing in the blood of Christ.

Lord Jesus Christ we thank you for your mercy and grace.   Strengthen us that we may serve you both in this community of faith and in the world beyond.
