Holy Communion is an important sacrament at St John's. (A sacrament can be described as an outward visible sign of an inward invisible grace). The bread and wine are symbols of the body and blood of Jesus. A reminder of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross - his body which was broken and his blood which was shed.
At the Last Supper, the night before he died, Jesus shared in a Passover meal. He broke bread and shared wine with these words, 'do this in remembrance of me.' (Luke 22:19)
We try to share in Holy Communion about once a month. You can find out more details on the preaching plan. Services marked 'HC' indicate Holy Communion is included. All are welcome to share in this sacrament. Children too. We do ask that children have the permission of their parents but we want to be as open as possible. Jesus welcomed all - and we do too in his name.
