Receiving and consuming Holy Communion - advice updated July 7

By Jonathan Smith, Aug 7 2020 01:51PM

How do I wear a face covering if distributing or receiving Holy Communion?

Face coverings should be worn by the president and anyone assisting at the time of distribution of

the consecrated bread.

Each communicant should extend their hands to receive Holy Communion, with face covering in

place. They should then lower or unloop the face covering, consume the consecrated bread, and

then replace the face covering before moving back to their place in the congregation.

The bread should only be administered into the hand with care being taken not to touch communicants’ hands. If this does happen, both the person distributing and the communicant should sanitise their hands immediately.
