    Communion at CFSR

    Each month – normally on the first Sunday of the month in this Church – we celebrate communion. We do this because, when he celebrated his final Passover with his disciples, Jesus commanded that we remember his death in this way (see Luke 22:19). In different church traditions, Communion may be called by different names, for example the Eucharist (meaning "thanksgiving"), the Breaking of Bread or the Lord’s Supper.

    Faith Statement

    Mission

    To provide Christian fellowship, nurture and outreach to the English-speaking community of Siem Reap

    Statement of Faith
