Communion is a service which includes the sharing of bread and wine – it is done in recognition and remembrance of the meal that Jesus shared with His disciples before he was betrayed, taken prisoner and then gave His life.
It’s a service of thanksgiving and where we use bread and wine as symbolic representations of His love for the disciples, the world and humanity.
We recognise that the taking of wine may be difficult for some – P-platers for example need to be 0.0 blood alcohol, some may have medical and philosophical reasons for not partaking of alcohol; we have that covered, offering grape juice or wine.
We welcome all who love Jesus, are committed to His ways and who regularly take Communion at other Christian Churches to take Communion with us.
If you’re not sure if you should or not then it’s also OK to come to the front of the Church and ask for a blessing instead.
