Anyone is welcome to receive communion, as long as they have made a personal decision to follow Jesus.
Sometimes folk are a bit nervous about Communion and what they should do. Here is a quick guide. No-one is pressured to take Communion, it is entirely voluntary.
Communion happens following a shorter time of worship, with pairs of people serving the Bread and Wine around the hall. We encourage everyone to participate and recieve the bread and wine (non alcoholic) which we all take back to our seats and when everyone has received we drink the wine together as a symbol of our unity with Jesus.
If you are not sure about your own faith then you are very welcome to go up and ask for a blessing or either remain in your seat. No one will think any the less of your actions.
We welcome visitors from other Churches to share in Communion with us as we are all part of the same body of Christ.
Children and young people are welcome to receive communion at the discretion of their parents or responsible adult.
"For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes." 1 Corinthians 11:26
Jesus directed His followers to participate together in the memorial supper remembering His death until He comes again in glory.
We remember who He is!
We remember who we are!
We remember what He did!
We remember what He does!
We remember that He is coming back!
Communion is usually towards the beginning of the service after a shorter time of worship on the First Sunday and Third Sunday in the morning when it is an all age communion with the children taking part.
