The Eucharist, often called the Mass or Holy Communion, is the service at the heart of our worshipping community. Eucharist comes from a greek word meaning thanksgiving.

 

On the night before he was killed, Jesus met in an upper room with his friends and shared a meal of bread and wine.

 

In the Eucharist we follow Christ's instruction that we share bread and wine in remembrance of him.

We believe that through faith we receive Christ's body and blood in the bread and wine and we are nourished as a community.

 

The Eucharist is one of the sacraments of the Church, which means that it is a visible sign of God's grace.
