For those who find a time of reflection and prayer after receiving the sacrament a blessing, that time may now be done in the pew rather than kneeling at the altar rail. We know that this may inconvenience some who prefer kneeling at the altar, but it is a compromise of the moment until other alternatives (such as the possibility of moving the altar rail down to the first step) are fully explored. We will keep the congregaton informed should alternatives be put into action.
Of course, we will continue to bring communion to those in the pews who find continuous common a challenge.
We follow standard practice with our use of the common cup which involves wiping and turning the chalace with each sip and all servers will have access to antibacterial gel prior to serving.
Should you have any questions about our current communion practice please contact Pastor Keith.
