We usually hold a service of Holy Communion every other Sunday, and also for key feasts and holy days such as Ash Wednesday. If you are a baptised Christian, and would normally receive Holy Communion in your own church, you are invited forward to receive bread and wine during our communion services. Alternatively, anyone can come forward for a blessing.
Guidelines concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We are all finding it difficult to know how to assess this situation. We don’t want to contribute to a climate of panic or fear. At the same time, to maintain business as usual would also be inappropriate. These guidelines are based on the latest advice issued both by the national Church of England and our diocesan bishops, and have been drawn up in consultation with the churchwardens.
We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the latest advice we receive. Let’s not give in to fear or panic, but let’s also be active in prayer, particularly for those who are most vulnerable at this time.
And perhaps it is fitting to close with this verse from the letter to the Hebrews: “Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, as some are doing” (10:25).
