Mid-Week Eucharist at Christ Church Gabriola
Mid-Week Eucharist at Christ Church Gabriola The Worship Committee of Christ Church Gabriola is supporting the Christian spiritual practice of a mid-week Eucharist or communion.
The simplicity of CCG’s mid-week Eucharist/communion is reflected in the language of the service and its liturgy, the “work of the people.” The liturgy used is from the highly regarded Iona community, an international ecumenical movement committed to the “gospel of Jesus Christ, and to follow where that leads, even into the unknown.” The community is particularly well known for its inclusivity. The Iona liturgy we have selected draws on the rich Christian tradition of a deeply hospitable community where all are welcome.
The simplicity of CCG’s mid-week Eucharist/communion is also reflected in its design and implementation. The half-hour service is composed of prayers, readings and communion using the ancient practice of serving one another.
The first of CCG’s mid-week Eucharist/communion services are scheduled for June 26, July 17 and July 31 at 10 am.
Anyone who wishes to share a few moments of prayer and communion with others is warmly invited
