Jesus is the good shepherd and we are his flock. We are brought together in love by Jesus to share our lives with him and with each other. In the sacrament of the eucharist we celebrate this wonderful togetherness with the Lord, our shepherd. The Holy Spirit transforms the bread and the wine so that they become for us the very body and blood of Christ that he was willing to lay down so that we might be raised with him into eternal life.
At Saint Laika’s everyone is invited to receive communion and be in communion. There are no exceptions.
If you have been pushed out of a church in the past or if you do not feel part of the institutional churches, for whatever reason, you are especially welcome here, and you will be among people who know exactly how you feel.
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.
