Coronavirus and Church Life
We have received the following UPDATED (10.03.20) guidance from the Church of England. In light of the continued increase of COVID-19 cases in the United Kingdom, it is now necessary to suspend the administration of the chalice (just one kind of communion i.e. the consecrated bread/ wafer/ host) as well as physical contact during the sharing of the peace, blessing or “laying on of hands”. Thank you for your help and understanding with this. Rev Jan.
GLUTEN FREE WAFERS If you require a gluten-free wafer would you please tell one of the Sidesmen before the service. Thank you.
