St John the Baptist Parish Church
Don’t miss our next Café Eucharist
Sunday 10 am 18th August in the Church Hall
Theme: What can we learn from the Celtic Saints?
What to expect:
St John’s Café Eucharists are more relaxed, social and creative than our regular more formal worship. This does not make it any less significant, in fact, it becomes more so as it takes us to the heart of the social dimension of the Eucharist.
Jesus instituted the Eucharist within the context of a meal at the Last Supper. The early Christians also shared Holy Communion as part of a meal. Our usual post service coffee is integrated into the service. When you arrive go to the kitchen hatch to collect a coffee and something sticky to eat and find a place at a table. We “go paperless” for the service, which will be projected on the wall using PowerPoint. Hymn books are still available.
The Eucharistic Prayer to be used on this occasion comes from the Iona Community. Communion (real bread on this occasion) is shared at the tables.
