The Sanctuary

 

High Altar



Here is the altar, the holy table, around which the people of God gather for the Eucharist, the great thanksgiving, the Lord's Supper, the Holy Communion.

Jesus died that we might live.   At the last supper with his disciples he shared bread and wine and commanded us to do the same.   We believe Jesus to be present in the bread and wine of the Holy Communion.

 

 

Pause and think about what Jesus did, his courage and humility, and pray that, through sharing in the Eucharist, we may be made worthy followers of Jesus.

 

 

Return through the chancel and turn left at the foot of the chancel step.
