Breaking of Bread

Our Sunday morning Breaking of Bread service centres around the emblems of bread and wine, which our baptised members partake of every week to remember the life, death, resurrection and promised return of our Lord Jesus Christ. DSC03602-300x200

The service (see outline below) usually lasts around one hour and twenty minutes. It includes hymns, readings from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, prayers, collections and announcements. Preceding the Breaking of Bread there is an exhortation which is a short Bible talk based on different aspects of Bible teaching which encourage us to follow God’s ways.
