Communion

And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Paul describes Jesus at The Last Supper - 1 Corinthians 11:24-26 (NIV)

We have communion services every week, with regular communion services on Sundays at 9.00am and on  Wednesdays at 9.30pm. For details of when our Sunday services at 10.30am and 6.30pm are communion services, you can view our What's on page.

In its simplicity the act of communion is we as Christians remembering The Last Supper, as described to us in the Bible in the Gospels and Pauls first letter to the Corinthians. When we take communion we remember what Jesus did for us when he was sacrificed on the cross.

During the process of receiving communion, the music group will play some quiet hymns, which you are welcome to join in if you wish to do so.

To receive communion in the Church of England, you should be confirmed, however, you are welcome to receive a blessing from the communion assistant - please bring your service sheet with you and hold it where they can see it. If you are visiting our church and normally receive communion in your church, you are welcome to participate in communion with us.
