From the Churchwardens – best hygiene practice

The Church of England currently recommends the following good practice:

  • All who administer the bread at Holy Communion should wash their hands with a sanitiser before distribution.
  • Intinction (dipping your wafer into the wine) is not recommended as this is considered an infection transmission route, so please take the cup and drink from it.
  • Anybody with an infection including a cough or a cold etc. should not share The Peace, and should take Holy Communion in only one kind (i.e. just the bread)
  • We shall put the first recommendation into practice immediately, and perhaps each of us can individually consider the other two.

If you would like further information, please ask the Churchwardens.
