Holy Communion On The Feast Of Thomas Cranmer

Untitled-1

The liturgy for this celebration of holy communion is taken from the First Book of Common Prayer (1549) of which Thomas Cranmer was both editor and major author. The music is also from the time of Cranmer's life and contains some of the first examples of English church music where the texts were in the vernacular.

At Saint Laika’s everyone is welcome to eat and drink in remembrance of Jesus Christ as he commanded his followers to do. If you want to physically partake of communion you will require a small piece of bread and a small amount of drink (preferably made from grapes and containing alcohol). How you view the nature of this part of the service is completely up to you.
