The Eucharist stands at the very heart of the life, worship and mission of the Christian Church. Under various names – Holy Communion, the Lord’s Supper, the Eucharist – this central action of the Christian community is celebrated by Anglicans week by week and day by day. In the Eucharist we commemorate the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ by receiving the blessed sacrament.
Evensong is generally sung, and uses the pattern of Evensong in the Book of Common Prayer which has been largely unchanged since 1549.
Compline is the final service of the day and consist of a service of evening prayers
