    the table in Christian churches where communion is given


  1. Communion table

    A Communion table is used by many Protestant churches, particularly from Reformed, Baptist, Congregational, and non-denominational traditions, for the preparation of the Eucharist. The use of a simple table instead of an altar reflects these churches' rejection of any suggestion of sacrifice in the Holy Communion: they believe that the Passion of Jesus Christ was a perfect sacrifice for sins made once for all. The table may be very simple, adorned perhaps with only a linen cloth, or with an open Bible and a pair of candlesticks. Some Communion tables often bear the inscription Do This in Remembrance of Me from the Last Supper, indicating the belief in Holy Communion being a memorial rather than a sacrament. Such a table may be temporary, being moved into place only when there is a Communion Service.
