Coronavirus (COVID 19)

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York issued the following guidance last Wednesday.

“In the light of the continued increase of Covid-19 cases in the United Kingdom it is now necessary to suspend the administration of the chalice as well as physical contact during the sharing of the peace, blessing or laying-on of hands.”

Therefore the advice to all communicants for the time being is that everyone receives the consecrated bread with the priest alone taking the wine on behalf of all. We shall, of course, continue to use hand-gel.
