Breaking of Bread

Sundays at 11am

bread and wine

A central part of our week is when we meet together on Sunday mornings to remember the life and sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that after his death Jesus did not remain in the tomb, but was resurrected by God. This echoes the promise that God has given those that follow Jesus, that we don't need to fear death, but we can look forward to a new life beyond this one.

This service is an opportunity to reflect on what Jesus did for us, and to think about how our lives are progressing. During the service, we eat a small piece of bread and drink a small quantity of wine. This was an instruction given to us by Jesus and mirrors what Jesus did with his disciples immediately prior to his death. The service is open to all, however, participating in the bread and wine is for Christadelphian members.

(26) And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

(27) And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

(28) For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Matthew Chapter 26 Ver 26-28 (KJV)

In the above passage from the Gospel according to Matthew we find Jesus, shortly before his crucifixion, telling his followers (his disciples) to participate in this symbolic meal to remember the work he did for us.
