This week I was invited to take a lesson with Year 6 pupils about Holy Communion. Only two children in the class had ever been to a church service with communion and none had received communion themselves.
I took them through the account of The Last Supper from the New Testament and how that has become a sacrament in the Christian church. They were most interested in hearing about my personal experiences of taking communion in a variety of different settings, and wanted to know why communion is important to Christians and how it makes us feel connected to God. At the end of the lesson we passed around the bread and grape juice so they could experience for themselves how communion is taken in my church, making it clear that we were only re-enacting, not taking communion for real.
