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. It would be appreciated if visitors from other assemblies would bring a letter of commendation from their home assembly. Non-Christians are welcome to attend and observe the service too.
LORD'S DAY (SUNDAY) EVENINGS
Our Gospel Service, held each Sunday evening at 5.00pm, 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. Refreshments are served after the meeting.
On the first Sunday of the month at 5.00pm we have a family service. Whilst children are especially in mind, the meeting is suitable for all ages.
The members of the assembly enjoy coming along each Sunday to hear the good news – we hope you will join us too.
