Practice of Intinction 3rd December 2017
As from next Sunday, 3rd December the practice of intinction (dipping communion water into the wine) will no longer be allowed in this church. This as you know from the Parish Magazine is following a long period of consultation and then a final decision made by the PCC, but it is also in line with guidelines recently issued by Archbishop Sentamu.
‘The normal practice of the Church of England is to receive both kinds (bread and wine), if, for personal reasons, a person does not want to drink from the common cup, I encourage all parishes to adopt the practice of the Mother Church of the Diocese, York Minster’
‘The normal practice in York Minister is to receive the consecrated bread into the hand. If you prefer not to drink from the common cup, please take the bread only’.
