In Joyful Hope

5 May 2016 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

IN JOYFUL HOPE – A Step in Eucharistic Communion  –  St. Columba’s Church, invites everyone to “A Celebration of Holy Communion” this Thursday, The Ascension Day, at at 8.00pm.  Each year, since its inception in 2010, clergy and laity from a number of Christian traditions have met ‘In Joyful Hope’, four times yearly, at a variety of church venues to experience, through the Eucharist/Holy Communion/Lord’s Supper, the realisation that Christ is present with us. We acknowledge the differences that exist in theological interpretation and liturgical practice, but believe that the joy of being present at the Eucharistic worship of another Christian tradition is greater than the pain experienced by some attendees, in being unable to practice fully in the sacrament.  ‘Our focus is on the sharing of who we are with one another.’  ‘Spread the word that we may spread the welcome.’
