Holy Communion is one of only two sacraments recognised by The Church of Scotland. (The other is Baptism.)
Although Holy communion is one of the most common elements of worship across the Christian Church it is also known by other names. For example, it could be called the Eucharist or The Lord’s Supper depending on church tradition.
The service helps us to recall and to celebrate Jesus’ last meal with his disciples and his ongoing journey with us. Many folks see this type of service as part of their journey when they are able to reflect on their own pilgrimage through life.
Breaking and Sharing of Bread and Wine.
During this service, we share in a simple meal in the form of bread and wine (we use non-alcoholic wine) which we share with each other. A symbol of passing on the peace of Jesus personally to those sitting next to you.
The Lord’s Table is open to all.
The service finishes with a blessing for all in attendance.
