now, and then logging in whenever you wish to take Holy Communion,
we can better determine how our experiment with Holy
Communion on the web is being used. It will also
allow us to communicate with you concerning new features
as these are added to this website. Our objective
is to make this an authentic Christian worship experience
and to provide the tools that will make this possible.
Please take a moment to read the help notes regarding
One of the main benefits
of registering is that you will not have to keep typing
your name into form fields, such as when submitting
an article to a discussion group (not yet implemented),
because the web server already knows who you are. Similarly,
other people can be reasonably sure that you really
sent the articles and postings attributed to you, and
that someone else didn't pretend to be you when posting.
After you are successfully
registered, your web browser will ask you to type in
your username and password the first time you try to
access Holy Communion on the Web. The browser will remember
this information for as long as it continues to run,
so you can access any page or resource without being

This website is under on-going development.
Future additions will include blogs and discussion
groups that will allow us all to share our
experiences with Holy Communion on the Web. It
is also likely that in the future you will have a
choice of Communion liturgies, rather than only the
one currently provided. You may also have some
suggestions about how we can enhance the worship
experience using this website. At least some
enhancements are likely to need some of the
information requested on the registration form.
One important item now is the ability to change
your default settings for the enhanced accessibility
functions, most notably the addition of
text-to-speech synthesis for most of the text pages.

pages came about as a direct result of suggestions
by persons who have used this website in the past.
Sight impaired persons can now hear pages in lieu of
being able to read printed pages. If you have
suggestions for enhancing this website, please
