Covid 19 – We have been recommended by both Archbishops to:
i) offer Communion in one kind only to all communicants i.e. the consecrated bread/wafer/host, with the priest alone taking the wine
ii) suspend handshaking or other direct physical contact during the sharing of the peace
iii) suspend direct physical contact as part of a blessing or ‘laying on of hands’
The Chalice will, therefore, be placed on the altar for use by the President and there will be no laying on of hands during or after the service. Priests presiding at the Eucharist and servers all use hand sanitisers immediately before the Preparation of the Table and Eucharistic prayer.
If you are unwell, please do not come to church but do let us know so we can pray for you.
All guidance will continue to reflect appropriate public health advice.
