All are welcome
Anyone who usually takes Holy Communion is welcome to receive at St Nicholas Church. If you do not wish to take Holy Communion, you are very welcome to come forward to the altar rail to receive a blessing. Please bring your order of service with to indicate that this what you would like.
Gluten free wafers are available. Please speak to the person welcoming at the door before the service begins.
Receiving the sacrament
The consecrated wafer (bread) is offered into hand; there is the option of also receiving wine from the common cup or having the priest intinct (dip) your wafer into a separate chalice. If you wish to receive an intincted wafer you should collect an orange card from the dish as you come up for communion to indicate this is your preference.
