The bread and the chalice are symbols of the sacrament of Holy Communion. The loaf of bread symbolizes the one body of Christ from which we are all fed. The cup of wine symbolizes the blood of Christ that gives us new life. The colour of the worshiper’s robe is blue, the colour of hope for eternal life in Heaven.

The empty cross represents the universal salvation offered by the resurrected Christ.
