The Love Feast (sometimes called the Agapé, one of the Greek words for love), is a Christian Fellowship Meal which recalls the meals of the New Testament Church. It offers us fellowship and community in the name of Jesus. It gives each person present the opportunity to share of themselves in testimony, prayer, song or with a reading from the Bible.
Originally the Love Feast and communion were one meal, but gradually they separated. While communion has been celebrated in nearly every part of the Church, the Love Feast has only appeared in certain denominations at certain times, particularly during revivals.
In the Eighteenth Century the Methodists received the gift of the Love Feast from the Moravians, when John Wesley was impressed by their faith and standards of godliness. Since then, the practice has gradually spread to the wider Church of God.
The Love Feast is an authentic act of worship from Revivals of the past, and it can help to revive your church today!
