Hosting a House Church
Alternatively, groups are encouraged to include an 'Extended Grace' when sharing an informal meal together.
See Booklet 5 'Runsheet for an informal gathering for the sharing of a meal together'.
Sharing communion is an important part of who we are as Anglican family. If you would like pre-consecrated wafers and wine, please advise the office during the week and these will be consecrated during the livestream service.
In order to share these safely, we suggest that one person, who has thoroughly cleaned their hands as per best practice, is responsible for opening the packet and placing wafers onto a plate for each individual person to take one by one. There should be no hand to hand contact.
Everyone should wash their hands before and after communion (as per best practice for eating). You might like to have some hand sanitiser ready, if you have some available.
We encourage leaders to follow the latest Covid-19 health and safety guidelines at all times. Visit www.covid19.govt.nz/traffic-lights for more information.
