Faith, fellowship and food for life! A four week series that focuses on the celebration of the Eucharist (Communion) at the evening service. Beginning on the 4th September at 6pm and running through the month. The vision for this series is to experience different aspects of the traditional Communion service in an informal setting. Church will happen in the hall, around tables, and, along with a light supper, we will break bread together and share in the cup. Just like the early church we will all take part in the preparations as well as the participation.
Jesus shared in many meals with people and these are all sacred moments. From the wedding at Cana to a simple fish braai on the beach for his disciples; dinner with the religious high-brow as well as supper with the outcast and sinners; the feeding of 5000 to the last Passover meal with the 12 in the upper room. The Eucharist (or Communion Service) continues these meals of Jesus, through his life, death and resurrection, as a sign of the nearness of The Kingdom of God.
These Sunday evenings are designed so that you may invite people along to share The Lord’s Table with us.
St Paul encourages us:
1 Corinthians 11:23-25 New International Version (NIV)
23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 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.” 25 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.”
So, let us remember!
