Following instruction to all the clergy from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, Holy Communion will be given in one kind (the consecrated Bread only) at all Eucharists in this benefice with immediate effect and the Sign of Peace will not be shared in the congregation.

All Eucharists and other acts of worship will be offered as normal, and it continues to be our privilege to offer pastoral and sacramental ministry to those in need.

We pray at the Eucharist and daily for those tackling the spread of the coronavirus, for all who are anxious or afraid, for all quarantined or infected, for continuing compassion and care, and for the prevalence of common sense and goodwill. 

We encourage all to use the sanitising hand-gel, which is available at all churches in the group.
