The most important meeting for the ecclesia is the memorial meeting. So what is it all about?
Every Sunday morning at 11:00 we meet in our hall to remember Jesus. We call this the memorial meeting. A memorial is a way of reminding yourself of a person or event. We remind ourselves that Jesus had great love for God and we likewise should love God in all aspects of our life. Jesus also loved us – He loved us so much that he died on a cross to show us. So we attend this meeting in memory of Jesus and the sacrifice he made on our behalf.
We hold the memorial meeting on Sunday because it was on the first day of the week that the disciples in the first century came together to break bread.
On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Acts 20:7
It was the focal point in the first century, and remains so today.
During the meeting we sing songs and hymns to worship God. We also pray to Him. We hear a exhortation from a appointed speaker. The exhortation is intended to focus our minds on the sacrifice made by Jesus.
At the memorial meeting people who have been baptised eat a small portion of bread and drink a small amount of wine. This was the last meal that Jesus had before he was crucified. He ate bread and wine with his friends. We eat and drink to remember him.
