The Eucharist is one of the most special ways in which we express our Christian faith in church. It goes by many names and gets called Communion, Mass, the Lord’s Supper, and other titles. Our main Sunday service, Holy Eucharist incorporates hymns, bible readings, a sermon and prayers all leading up to the Eucharist itself – a sharing of bread and wine in remembrance of the body and blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
At its heart we share bread and wine, which we think of as Jesus’s body and blood. As we celebrate the Eucharist we remember that Jesus died on the Cross so that we might be saved.
The Eucharist has been celebrated by Christians for more than 2000 years, since the time
of Jesus and his disciples and it forms the bedrock of our worship and praise of God. Eucharist means “give thanks” and through the Eucharist, as well as remembering Jesus, we give thanks that he was sent to us by God. We thank God for all that he does for us, and we also give thanks that when we do things wrong we are always forgiven – because God loves us.
All baptised Christians of all ages are welcome to share the Eucharist with us, and everyone is welcome to join us at the Eucharist for prayer and worship, and to get to know more about God and Jesus through this holy mystery.
We celebrate the Eucharist every Sunday at 10:00 am in all four of our churches, and also at 10:00 on Wednesdays in All Saint’s, Rhiwbina and All Saints, Llandaff North, and also on Thursdays at 10:00 am in St Mary’s, Whitchurch. We have a weekday Eucharist at 10:00 am in St Thomas’s, Birchgrove every second Tuesday of the month, and there are also other occasions during the year when we celebrate a Eucharist, so do please look at our events diary.
