In this service, we give thanks for Holy Communion, which at St Mary Magdalen is the heart of all our worship and devotion to God. In our Communion services, our Priest follows the example of Jesus, and gives thanks for our bread and wine, blesses it, and distributes it to the congregation. We do this because on the night before He died, Christ said "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me." (Luke 22.19). Following His words, we believe that Jesus is present in the bread and wine at our Communion services, and by taking Communion regularly, we believe that God transforms us into the image of Jesus.
