Our daily lives are full of frightening things. There are people who would bring terror into our lives; people who use fear to control us, bullies and the spiteful. Illness and death are unpredictable certainties for all of us. On top of our fear for ourselves we fear for the welfare of those we love. We can become consumed with worries and fearful of everything. This is not how God would have us live our lives. God tells us not to be frightened by the chaotic events of our earthly lives because they are only temporary. God's children will be released from all their fears when Christ returns to lead them into the kingdom of his Father. In the meantime we may glimpse the eternal peacefulness that awaits us in the sacrament of holy communion in which, together as one, we are in the presence of Jesus Christ who gives us peace.
At Saint Laika's everyone is welcome to take communion and be in communion, with each other and with God. There are no exceptions. So, come, join us.
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.
