Communion at Saint Andrew's

We celebrate the Lord's Supper from the altar.

The Pastor places an individual wafer into each communicant's hand and the worship assistant offers a pre-filled single-use communion cup of wine.

Communion is continuous; please follow the ushers' guidance on when to come forward.

After receiving communion please drop the disposable, recyclable communion cup into the bowl offered by the usher.

Please remember:
  • you may take either the bread, or the wine, or both elements
  • if you prefer to use a pre-packaged communion set, please let the ushers know when you come into worship
  • those not communing are invited to receive a blessing
