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 and All Saints (3rd. Sunday of Month) See details on the monthly service schedule. Common Worship Order 1 is used for the thrice Monthly Parish Communion at St. Peters and at St. Mary’s. The Choir leads the singing of the communion setting and hymns.  This service includes a sermon and lasts approximately one hour. Young children from the respective ‘Rise and Shine’ groups join us at the communion following their meeting in Church rooms.
