What is Communion?

“Jesus, on the night of his betrayal, took bread. Having given thanks, He broke it and said, This is my body, broken for you. Do this to remember me. After supper, he did the same thing with the cup: This cup is my blood, my new covenant with you. Each time you drink this cup, remember me.” [1 Corinthians 11]

We at Newday-Prince strongly believe in communion as being very important, and central to our Christian walk and faith.


Because the purpose of communion is for us to remember that Jesus died for us, by being subjected to death on a cross.

His sacrificial love bought our freedom.

What does communion mean?

Communion is also known as “The Lord’s Supper” or “Breaking of Bread.”

For some, it is a meal shared as a sign of love and fellowship.

What’s the significance of bread & wine?

The bread represents the body of Jesus – broken for us as punishment for our sin.

The wine represents the blood of Jesus – shed for us so that we can have a new relationship with God.

The Greek for the word “koinonia” embraces concepts of community, communion, joint participation, sharing and intimacy.

Who can share in communion?

Anyone who has accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour can share in communion.

Today, the prerequisite for us as Christians, is to examine our motives, test our heart, and come to this meal with respect.
