Communion is at the very core of our Christian faith, but what about communion cups? How did these come to be? Let’s take a look at how communion has evolved over the years, and how the individual communion cup came to be.
Back in the day every church would use a single chalice to represent the blood of Jesus. Some still make use of this, however after COVID-19 that may not remain true. Churches started introducing individual communion cups back in the 1890’s when sharing a cup no longer seemed sanitary. Today, we can completely understand why churches would want to change.
Since the 1890’s, individual shot glasses became the norm. They would be served to congregants with a wafer, cracker or piece of bread. Besides all the preparation that was required, the cleaning up was the issue. Have you ever tried to wash 200 individual shot glasses? Or even 1000? This was standard practice for many years. Until…
The pre-filled communion cup. From the perfect amount of juice and the simplest wafer to disposable cups that no longer needed to be washed. What is not to love? Life has made the act of communion so incredibly simple, just like the gospel. He loves you and He will love you forevermore, not because of anything you did or will do, but because He already did. He died for us so that we could have life, and life to the full. And a pre-filled communion cup just adds to that full life!
We ship pre-packaged communion cups throughout the United Kingdom directly from our manufacturing plant in London. We also have additional locations globally in Canada, South Africa and the United States.
