Coronavirus Update

Guidance from the Diocese to the new Church of England advice that the priest should now: 

  • Offer Communion in one kind only to all communicants i.e. the consecrated bread/wafer/host, with the priest alone taking the wine;
  • suspend handshaking or other direct physical contact during the sharing of the peace;
  • suspend direct physical contact as part of a blessing or ‘laying on of hands’.

In light of this we will be following this advice at St Barnabas
