It is the custom of churches in the URC to celebrate Communion, on average, regularly, once a month and  Prestbury and St Andrew's both follow this practice.

In the URC the Minister, usually assisted by a least two Elders, presides at the Communion, which is served to the congregation in their seats in the manner of a meal. The Bread is served first from a common plate  and then small individual glasses of Wine are distributed. At Prestbury and St Andrew's non-alchoholic wine is used.

We believe that all adults and children (if they so wish) should recieve Communion whether they are confirmed or not.

For times of Communion services please see the services page.
