Guidelines for Leading Communion

Guidelines for leading communion.

Before Communion

  • Unable to fulfil a duty? Give the service coordinator sufficient notice.
  • Inform the service coordinator that you are present when you arrive.
  • Be seated in such a way as to minimise distraction.
  • Be prepared to come up immediately when the communion slide goes up.
  • Position the lectern in the centre of the church and not to the side.
  • Always use the mic. Do not test the mic by blowing into it.
  • Communion should take 7-10 minutes.

The Communion Message

  • The message should take 3-5 minutes.
  • Read and expound from one text only.
  • Call for a short time of silence after the message.

Inform the Congregation

  • Communion is open to all who have placed their faith in Jesus and are in good standing with their local church.
  • Anyone who hasn't placed their faith in Jesus is to “let the elements pass by”.
  • Parents are to exercise authority over believing children and teens.
  • Other children and teens must speak to an elder before taking communion.
  • The congregation is to wait when they receive the elements so that we can partake together.

Distribution of the Communion Elements

  • Call up the stewards to distribute the elements.
  • Pray before eating the bread. Wait.
  • Pray before drinking the cup. Wait.
  • Close in a short prayer.
