v 42. All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.
And so the Church was established in Jerusalem. From the very beginning there was teaching, fellowship, celebrating the Lord’s Supper – or Communion as we now often call it, and praying together. These practices still remain at the heart of Church life today. The Church has always been much more than a ‘religious club’ It is a worshipping, learning, serving community, committed to following Jesus and spreading the Good News of God’s kindness in forgiving and redeeming a people to be His own.
