From the earliest days of Christian worship, the Eucharist has been the central and culminating moment of the Christian gathering. It is where followers of Christ remember His death, celebrate His resurrection, and anticipate His return.
It is also a moment to "feed on Christ" -to let Him be our portion, our "more than enough"- even as we have confessed our own emptiness. We come to the Table with empty hands; Christ gives us His body and blood as our bread and cup.
We use the words and shape of a historic Christian liturgy, as preserved and expressed by the Anglican communion. It can be found here.
At New Life Downtown, we invite families and friends to receive the communion elements from the communion tables and then return their seats to take the elements together, re-enacting a meal. We also have a prayer team available to minister to those in need of a special grace.
