Resources - Ideas for Communion

FCC at Worship

We hold communion (or Eucharist or Breaking of Bread) once a month.  We feel comfortable in not setting a scene of quiet reverence.  Mainly because we would not succeed, so we do not put ourselves or others under that pressure!

We use gluten free bread, and Ribena.  We tried offering both wine and Ribens, but it became complex, and even nosier as we had to ask each person what they wanted. 

Be aware of people who cannot eat and or swallow.  Take advice from carers. 

The format we have settled with is:

We project a slide of a communion cup and bread,to act as a key or pointer.  This is not essential!  Picture is here or click on this thumbnail for larger picture. Communion picture

We give a very brief explanation of what we are doing.  Currently we focus more on remembering Jesus and what His love for us.

 

 

 

At the start we use this prayer:

Here is a bread roll.

All: We will think about Jesus.

Here is some Ribena.

All: We will think about Jesus.

Watch as the roll is broken and we drink the Ribena.

All: We will think about Jesus.

After everyone has had bread and Ribena, we say:

Now we have eaten the bread and drunk the Ribena.

All: We thought about Jesus.

We did all this to think about Jesus, and God’s great love for us! Amen
