Coronavirus - Advice from Bishop David & the Diocese

Advice from the Bishop and Diocese, based on current government advice, is that churches should already be following best-hygiene practices that include advising parishioners with coughs and sneezes to refrain from handshaking during The Peace and to receive Communion in one kind (bread only).

Intinction (dipping the bread into the wine cup) is not recommended as it represents an infection transmission route as well as a risk to those with certain allergies. 

At present, there is no Government advice that suggests the use of the Common Cup should be suspended.
