Holy Communion

 

Holy Communion, also known as the Lord’s Supper, is the sharing together of bread and wine as symbols of the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. This reflects upon the meaning given by Jesus to his last Passover meal (Matthew 26:17-29). The sharing in the bread and wine pointed to Jesus’s body and blood given for our redemption and the forgiveness of our sins. The church continues to share in this ‘supper’ in remembrance of the Lord Jesus, so that we may take a firmer hold of God’s promises for our forgiveness, and are strengthened by his Spirit to live for him. As we receive the bread and wine by faith, we are unified as a congregation, being reconciled to God and one another. We thereby express the gospel of God’s grace in Christ, and so we ‘proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes’ (1 Corinthians 11:26).

We share in Holy Communion at various times at St George’s, depending upon what congregation we belong to. Please speak to the presiding minister should you desire a gluten-free bread-wafer.
