Agape Feast – A Telephone Service

Fresco of a Christian Agape Feast from a Greek chapel

It’s our Maundy Thursday tradition to join together for a bring and share meal at communion. This year we ‘ll be joining together by phone. There’ll be a link for the short service, with a suggestion that you have some bread and wine (or other simple food and drink) as the service culminates in serving one another (remotely!) in a meal whose origins date back to the very first Christians.

What You Need

We’ll use the order of service as above, which you can view on-screen or download and print.

The highlight of this service is an act of sharing food and drink:

The feast can be a loaf of bread (or oatcakes, or a sweet bread) and a chalice of wine (or cider, or grape juice). The bread and the wine are passed to one another. Each person serving the individual next to him or her.

Ideally we would all be together and literally passing the bread and cup. But we can still share this moment, whether you’re alone or in a household.
