Time to gather some resources to get us in the frame of mind for worship tomorrow morning. This is World Communion Sunday and we will be celebrating communion at Graceview (in a very 2020 way – with pre-packaged elements which can be picked up by each attendee on the way into worship, and therefore partaking of the elements will be done with physical distancing in place). So this evening’s resources will be focussed on the Lord’s Supper.

Please be assured that the Communion portion of tomorrow’s service will be recorded and available here in the afternoon, once I’ve had time to edit and upload it.

If you are able to come to in-person worship, dear friends, I look forward to celebrating with you. If you are not able to be there in person, I trust that you will celebrate online in your own home.

Whether we celebrate in person or online, we are one in the Lord, who binds us together with chords that cannot be broken!
