Holy Communion, otherwise known as the Lord’s Supper, is a sacrament in which the Church remembers the death of Christ by eating bread and drinking wine, symbolising the body and blood of Christ. The bread and wine are also known as the “elements”.
At Crown Court we celebrate Communion as part of the morning service on the first Sunday of each month. The elements are served to the congregation as they sit in their pews, with the bread and the cup being handed from neighbour to neighbour.
On the first Sunday of March, June, October and December, during both morning and evening services, there is a slightly more formal celebration of Communion, where cloths are laid on all the pews to symbolise the whole congregation sitting at one common table.
We warmly invite Christians of all traditions to join us in celebrating Communion. However, if for any reason you do not wish to receive either the bread or the wine, you are welcome simply to pass them to your neighbour.
