It has been good to hear how so many of you have found the Sunday morning service so valuable, whether you are able to join together on the Zoom app or by following the paper copy at home at the same time.

The Worship Group recently talked about how we can develop our use of Zoom to enhance our community worship and spiritual life, and have decided to begin holding on Zoom the monthly Thursday morning Communion service that used to be held in the Abbey Hall Lounge.

There will be no paper or email copy of this service distributed in advance, since the prayers surrounding the Communion have been largely unscripted, but you can still join in!  

The basic service outline looks like this:
Opening prayer
The Psalm for the previous Sunday (see Prayer Meeting)
Remembering the Last Supper (using Matthew 26:26-30 or Mark 14:22-26 or Luke 22:14-20)
Prayer before sharing bread and wine (using 1 Corinthians, 11:23-26, or 10:16 & 17)
Sharing in bread and wine (at around 10.45)
Prayers for the world, the church, concerns and celebrations
The Lord’s Prayer
The sharing in the Grace

The first Thursday Communion will take place at 10.30am on 18 June.  The Zoom link to this service will be available on the weekly news sheet the week before.

We look forward to sharing with you!
