What is Communion?


Holy Communion is celebrated by the whole people of God gathered for worship. Also known as the Eucharist, the Mass, or the Lord’s Supper, it is at the heart of Christian worship.

It is celebrated by Christians around the world as a memorial of the death and resurrection of Jesus, in response to his words at the final meal he shared with his disciples, ‘Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the Eucharist, God invites us to his table as a foretaste of the heavenly banquet which he has prepared for people of all nations and cultures.
