Coronavirus

The Church and NHS guidelines revolve around 3 specific points:

  1. For preparation and distribution of Communion – those involved in the preparation and distribution of Communion should take particular care to wash hands thoroughly before handling the elements. Individual glasses for the wine are preferable. 
  2. Greeting one another (for example, during the sharing of the Peace). Physical contact should be kept to a minimum. Alternative methods, such as toughing elbows could be used.
  3. People who have recently travelled to affected areas should self-isolate until they are sure they do not present with the symptoms of Coronavirus. 

Please take care to implement these measures. The full recommendations are here:https://www.methodist.org.uk/about-us/news/latest-news/all-news/the-methodist-church-coronavirus-guidance/
