Extended Communion with the Reserved Sacrament is intended as a means of facilitating regular reception of Holy Communion. In this service the Reserved Sacrament (previously consecrated by a Priest) is distributed by suitably trained lay people with the approval of the Area and Diocesan Bishops. Extended Communion indicates that the lay person “extends” the Communion, celebrated within the Benefice by our Priests, across the whole Benefice.

The liturgy for Communion by Extension can be found here.  If you wish for further information, please find attached ‘Guidelines on Communion from the Reserved Sacrament’ and ‘Ad Clerum on Communion from the Reserved Sacrament

COVID UPDATE

At St Peter and St Paul’s Parish Church we are meeting to worship on Sundays; details can be found by clicking on the “Whats On”  link on the Homepage.

We are using the North door for entry, the door will be opened by a welcomer. You are required to wear a facemask (unless exempt) and should sanitize your hands on entry. Service and hymn books are available. You are asked to sign in the attendance book (for Trace & Contact purposes). You should socially distance from people outside your group.

We are singing hymns but continue to wear facemasks.

When receiving communion, you will be invited to move via the side aisles to the back of church where you should sanitise your hands again, before proceeding down the central aisle to receive a wafer from the celebrant. You should return then to your seat via the side aisle.

If you wish to speak with other members of the congregation after the service, please be mindful of the need to maintain social distancing and wearing your face mask.

We are not currently serving coffee after the service but will do so when we feel able to do so safely.

Our church is open for private prayer on Mondays and Fridays 10:00 – 15:00.
