What is Communion?

Communion is a way for followers of Jesus to remember what he has done for us. 

On the night before he died, Jesus shared a meal with his followers and friends. He gave them bread and wine as symbols of his body and blood that would be given up for them. He told them that this act of taking bread and wine would be their way of remembering his sacrifice until he returns.

Today, we call this act communion, and it’s our way of declaring to God and others what God has done and is still doing in each of us! When we participate in communion, we’re remembering Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and expressing outwardly that we believe this sacrifice alone is what gives us right standing with God. 

Sandals Church has an inclusive and all-embracing view of communion, meaning any individual who is a follower of Jesus, who is returning to faith in Jesus, or who wants to become a new follower of Jesus, may participate in the practice and celebration of communion.

We take part in communion together as a church during select weekend services, in groups or gatherings, or during online communion events throughout the year.
