Holy Communion

Holy Communion is a recognised sacrament of the Uniting Church in Australia. Within our varied traditions in congregations, it is also called 'The Eucharist' or 'The Lord's Supper'. We believe in an open table, where any baptised believer in Christ is welcome.

The Uniting Church also allows a variety of forms for Eucharistic worship, while stipulating that certain essential features must be included. The published orders of service indicate a desire to accept reforms in liturgy which ecumenical study in recent times has recommended.

During the COVID Pandemic permission was given by the Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) to stream communion and it is recommended that individual congregations check with their Presbytery to ensure that this is acceptable.


We attach a link to a recorded communion service of the Charlestown & Garden Suburb Congregation, with Rev Tom Stuart presiding.
