Coronavirus and Winter illnesses

The Church of England has offered guidance for Holy Communion in regard to Coronavirus and illness which Bishop Christine has handed on to us:

We advise parishioners with coughs and sneezes to refrain from handshaking during The Peace and to receive Communion in one kind only. Hand sanitizer is available at the back of church if you wish to use it. Priests, communion administrators and servers should wash their hands, preferably with an alcohol-based (minimum 60%) hand-sanitiser. Intinction is not recommended (even by celebrants or communion-administrators) as this represents an infection transmission route.

Lent begins in ten days and we will have services on Ash Wednesday at 10.15 at St Anthony's and 7pm here.

If you have palm crosses to be used for ashes, please bring them next Sunday or leave them in the vestry. Our annual MINE Lent course is on a separate pamphlet to take away.
