"We have very little information on the nature of the early church’s communion services. At Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit appeared in power, Peter preached to the assembled masses. “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts  2:41-42). Here was the first celebration of the Lord’s Supper. One thing that is immediately clear from this passage, and from others, is that the celebration of the Lord’s Supper was part of the normal, weekly life of the church just as much as the other things mentioned. Weekly communion is the rule, in the Bible."
