Communion

Communion

We celebrate Communion to remember what Jesus did for us by dying on the cross. Just before his crucifixion Jesus celebrated the  Passover with his disciples. At this meal He (Jesus) took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave  it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this  in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

              Luke 22:19-20 New International Version 

At Bromwich Road Mission Free Church our communion service reflects this command.  During the service 1 Corinthians Ch 11 v23 - 28 is read and there is a time for quiet reflection. The elements are taken around to the congregation, first the bread is taken this is eaten as it is received for individuals to reflect on their own. Then the 'wine' is taken around, this is kept until everyone has received it and everyone drinks this together as a sign of unity. Please note the 'wine' is red grape juice and we never use any alcoholic drink.

We welcome everyone who believes in the Bible and recognises Jesus as their own personal Saviour to celebrate communion with us. If you would prefer not to join in then please just let the elements pass you.
