Holy Communion:  

This is a commemoration of the last supper that Jesus spent with his disciples and is celebrated in the following formats as a regular family act of worship. The traditional form of the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is used at some of the said mid-week communion services at St. Peter’s. See details on the monthly service schedule. **************** The  Common Worship (CW) Order 1  is used at the All Saints 3.00 pm Parish Communion (first and third Sundays of month)  Three or four hymns are included and some parts of the service are sung. The service with a sermon is normally of around 50 minutes duration. The second, fourth and fifth Sunday Holy Communion Services at All Saints (8.30 a.m.) are said from the Book of Common Prayer. **************** Common Worship Order 1 is also used for the thrice Monthly Parish Communion at St. Peters and at St. Mary’s.
