Communion (or the Eucharist) is at the heart of Anglican worship. We believe that Jesus is intimately present with us when we take the elements, meeting us in the bread and wine. That’s why every Sunday we rehearse the gospel story in the breaking of bread, inviting everyone who has been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19) to come to the table and receive “the gifts of God for the people of God.” If that’s you, we invite you to come forward when the ushers indicate your row, receiving the bread and wine in rememberance that Christ died for you, and feeding on him in your hearts by faith, with thanksgiving.
If baptism has not yet been a part of your journey, that’s okay! We invite you to come forward anyway. Simply cross your arms over your chest, and we’d love to pray God’s blessing over you.
When taking communion, you may either dip the bread into the wine; or you may consume the bread and drink directly from the cup.
