AGAPE MEAL

As    part    of    our    Lent    /    Easter observation,      we      once      again feature   an   AGAPE   MEAL,    to   be held,          together          with          a Communion   Service,   on   Tuesday 16th    (7:30pm)    at    Holy    Trinity, Belbroughton. So, what is an ‘Agape Meal’ ? It       is       a       LOVEFEAST        which originated    in    the    early    Church and   was   a   time   of   fellowship   for believers. The   Eucharist   was   often   a   part   of the   Lovefeast   although   at   some point     (probably     between     the latter   part   of   the   1st   century   A.D. and    250    A.D.),    the    two    became separated. Thus,      in      modern      times      the Lovefeast    refers    to    a    Christian ritual     meal     distinct     from     the Lord's Supper. The         Lovefeast         seeks         to strengthen    the    bonds    and    the spirit   of   harmony,   goodwill,   and congeniality,   as   well   as   to   forgive past    disputes    and    instead    love one   another   -   just   what   we   need while we ‘discuss’ Brexit ! The    practice    of    the    lovefeast    is mentioned    in    Jude    1:12    of    the Christian      Bible      and      was      a "common     meal     of     the     early church."
