We believe that when we celebrate the Eucharist, Jesus is present with us in a present and tangible way. In the sacrament, we experience our union with Jesus by hearing the Word, eating bread and drinking wine. We do it just as Christians have done for almost two thousand years, because Jesus commanded us continually to do it. This is why the Eucharist is so important and central to us.

The climax of the Eucharistic liturgy is when we come to the altar and receive the bread and wine which has become for us the body and blood of Jesus Christ, thus strengthening our unity with Christ that we may be transformed, as the bread and wine has been transformed. All baptized Christians are welcome to come to the altar and receive communion.

Christ’s own forever
