Holy Communion

Holy Communion, the Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper is the central act of Christian worship, in which we respond to our Lord’s command, “Do this in remembrance of me” (1 Corinthians 11:24,25). The term “communion” emphasises that we partake of this sacrament together with the people of God in heaven and on earth, it joins us in unity as one body of believers.

Tea Service

The tea service combines tea (drinks and cake) with a short service.  The fellowship of sitting round tables drinking tea of coffee and sharing a piece of cake or biscuit allows us to reflect on the world, a visiting speaker gives the congregation a chance to listen and discuss a particular issue.  The short service follows the fellowship tea.
