Fabulous news!! Bishop Michael has given authorisation for 5 members of our care home singing group to take home communion to the sick and housebound - this includes leading our care home services and also for them to serve as chalice assistants in our Sunday services.
This means that there will be no disruption to our care home services when Ginni is on holiday in September.
It is hoped that, in the future, this small team will join Ginni in taking Holy Communion to those who are too unwell to attend church.
Approval was given in the following e mail from Bishop Michael
Thank you so much for your message – I was absolutely delighted to read about the developments you describe.
Your practice is 100% in line with the spirit and letter of Bishop Alan’s Ad Clerum which can be found here. So on that basis I am glad to authorise
Rosemary Stratton (Little Wymondley)
Jenny Sheach (St. Ippolyts)
Clare Larson (St. Ippolyts)
Anne Swift (Great Wymondley)
Pauline Hinks (St. Ippolyts)
as chalice assistants in your benefice and as people charged with the distribution of home communion.
All good wishes,
