Following the recently updated advice issued by the C of E, and the general concern for sensible precautions, I am requesting the following, from Sunday 8th March, for all attending services of Holy Communion:
1. Those who are in the practice of receiving by intinction be asked not to do so, but receive the wafer, or bread, without it touching the wine.
2. We share the peace with a smile and meeting of the eyes, rather than a handshake, hug or kiss.
We are not withdrawing the common cup for the time being.
