This exploration of breaking bread works with a broad understanding of the term: one that includes and honours the practice of Holy Communion, but reflects upon breaking bread in other ways and contexts too – ways that also make Jesus known.
Holy Habits is an initiative to nurture Christian discipleship. It explores Luke’s model of church found in Acts 2:42 – 47, identifies ten habits and encourages the development of a way of life formed by them. The habits are: biblical teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, sharing of resources, service, eating together, gladness and generosity, worship, prayer and making more disciples. The resources have been developed to help churches explore the habits in worship and other group activities (all-age or age-specific) and live out the habits in whole life, missional discipleship.
“The devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking oof bread and to prayer.”
