Holy communion liturgy

  1. 1. God of mercy, your love compels us to come in. Our hands unclean, our hearts unprepared; we are not fit even to eat the crumbs from under your table.
  2. 2. But you, Lord, are the God who saves, You share your bread with sinners. So cleanse and feed us with this bread and wine, as we live the story of his body broken and his blood shed for us. And so may Jesus live in our hearts forever as we live in His. Amen.
  3. 3. We gather round a table, set for a meal Clean linen and sparkling silver, baked bread and outpoured wine We gather round a table, having come ill-prepared Our hands unwashed, the dust of the day clinging to our clothes
  4. 4. We gather round a table, as members of one family Brothers and sisters of heavenly parentage, Children of God Siblings in Christ.
  5. 5. Here is why. Late one spring evening, at the time when everyone was celebrating God’s goodness a very long time ago, Jesus and his friends had one last meal together. They borrowed a room and enjoyed a good meal as they sang old psalms and prayed lovely prayers. Then Jesus did something odd
  6. 6. As he picked up some bread, he said a prayer, then he broke it and said ‘when you eat bread think about me, because just as this bread is broken, my body will be broken.’
  7. 7. They didn’t understand. But no-one dared ask what he meant. So they took the bread and ate it. And so will we!
  8. 8. Prayer over bread Thank you God for bread, even this tiny little taste reminds us of the food you give us each day. Thank you God for Jesus, help us to think about him whenever we eat bread. Amen.
  9. 9. After everyone had eaten their tea and was feeling pleasantly full, Jesus did something else odd. He picked up a goblet of wine and said ‘when you drink wine, think about me, because just as this wine has been poured out, so my life blood will be poured out, and there will be a new bond between people and God.’
  10. 10. They didn’t understand But no-one dared ask what he meant So they took the cup of wine and drank from it. And so will we!
  11. 11. Prayer over wine Thank you God for wine, even this tiny little sip reminds us of the joy you give us each day. Thank you God for Jesus, who calls us his brothers and sisters if we follow his way Help us to think about him whenever we drink wine.
  12. 12. Thank you, Lord, for this holy meal Thank you for the unity we share in Jesus Thank you that this is just a taste of the great feast you prepare for us in Heaven. Help us each day to follow Jesus, Your Son and our Saviour, Amen
  13. 13. After the meal was over, Jesus and his friends sang a song together before they went out, and so will we.
