The following guidelines regarding the Eucharist are in place for the foreseeable future due to COVID 19 and we are asking for adherence to them please:

                To minimise the risk of spread of infection communal drinking from the Chalice will be suspended.  Only the main celebrant will now drink from the Chalice.

                Holy Communion will be administered into the hands only and not onto the tongue.

                Everyone administering Holy Communion will now use an alcohol-based hand gel before beginning.  This is available on the table in the sanctuary and replaces the bowl, water and towel.
