BREAKING OF BREAD
Each Sunday morning we meet together to remember the Lord Jesus Christ in His appointed way through the breaking of bread and sharing of wine. This meeting is called different things by different Christians: the Communion, the Lord’s Supper, or the Breaking of Bread. The Lord Jesus Christ instituted this practice on the night in which He was betrayed, shortly before his crucifixion; see 1 Corinthians 11.23-26.
The mood of the service is quiet and reflective. Christian men lead the meeting which contains hymns, prayers, Bible teaching, and of course the breaking of bread and drinking of wine. In the communion part of the meeting a small piece of bread and a sip of wine are taken by those eligible to receive them as symbols representing Jesus's body and blood.
During the services women wear a head covering (e.g. a hat, scarf or mantilla) but men don't, as per the teaching of the New Testament; see 1 Corinthians 11.2-16. Likewise, we follow the teaching of the New Testament which states only the men should speak and teach in church meetings at which other men are present, while the women should keep silent (apart of course from the hymn singing); see 1 Corinthians 14.34-35.
There is something very special about meeting together with other Christians to remember the Lord Jesus Christ in this way and we welcome you to come and see what it’s like for yourself.
We welcome born-again Christians who have been baptised to break bread with us on a Sunday morning. Non-Christians are welcome to attend the service too, but we ask you not to take part in the sharing of bread and wine or leading in the meeting.
LORD'S DAY (SUNDAY) EVENINGS
Our Gospel Service, held each Sunday evening, is one of the best ways to get to know us. The meetings include Bible reading, traditional hymns, prayer, and a sermon outlining the good news of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
On the first Sunday of the month the evening meeting is at 5.00pm, so that we can have a family service at a time which suits younger children. This meeting is followed by a buffet supper to which all visitors are welcome. Likewise, the last Sunday of the month is slightly different – we meet with a focus on Prayer and Praise, hence there may not necessarily be a sermon.
The members of the assembly and sometimes other people enjoy coming along each Sunday to hear the good news – we hope you will join us too.
