Service with Holy Communion – 8:00am
The ‘Said Eucharist’ is a service of worship where the congregation both joins the priest in prayer to give thanks and praise to God, and shares in the sacrament of Holy Communion by receiving the consecrated elements of bread and wine, which represent Christ’s presence among the congregation. The service enables the congregation to listen to (and reflect on) the Word of God, through several readings from both the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament) and the New Testament, which are expanded and expounded on by the priest through the sermon. Prayers are offered for the world and the Church by a designated Intercessor from the congregation who offers prayers on behalf of all. The ‘Said Eucharist’ provides a vehicle through which people may have “an experience of God”.
