Looking at Worship
Jesus, at the Last Supper, instructed the disciples
"Whenever you do this, do it in memory of me." He was describing the
four-fold action of take, bless, break and share of the bread and wine,
at what is now celebrated in most churches, and in this parish, as the
central act of worship, in the sacrament of Holy Communion, the Mass or
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MASS,COMMUNION AND EUCHARIST?
No difference. These are three names for the same service.
Mass is derived from the Latin ending of the service "Ite missa est" meaning "Go, it is sent". The name is convenient because of its shortness and because unlike the other two names it does not also refer to a particular part of the service.
(Holy) Communion(from Latin) refers to the act of our being joined with Christ and all Christians when we receive the bread and wine.
Eucharist (from Greek) means thanksgiving and refers particularly to that part of the service where the priest consecrates the bread and wine by saying a prayer of thanksgiving over them.
WHAT WILL I NEED ?
Nothing. Books are supplied in church.
For use in church we have chosen the New Revised Standard Version of the bible. This may be bought from the parish office if you would like one for use at home.
For the Mass, we now use only "An Anglican Prayer Book, 1989" commonly abbreviated to APB. This is not only a revision of the language of the older book, but more importantly recovers the earlier understandings of the service, and allows greater freedom and variety of worship.
WHAT MUST I WEAR ?
We want everyone to be free to follow their own sense of what is fitting, and not feel judged by others for it.
MAY I RECEIVE COMMUNION ?
If you are from another church and receive communion there (and are baptised) you may receive communion. If you are Anglican you will need to have been confirmed or have been admitted to communion.
You may receive communion in different ways, either receiving the host (bread) directly onto your tongue, or into your hand, and either drinking the wine from the chalice, or dipping your host into the wine.
WHAT IF I AM NOT RECEIVING COMMUNION?
If you are not receiving communion you may still come to the rail for a blessing. Fold your arms across your chest to indicate that you are not receiving.
There are four liturgical colours used during the year: Red,
White, Purple and Green.
