Receiving Holy Communion from the Chalice by ‘Self-Intinction’ (by dipping the Host in the Chalice by a communicant):
The Church teaches that one can receive Holy Communion on both kinds or on either kind. Where Holy Communion is given on both kinds every communicant who wants is welcome to receive the body as well as the blood from the Chalice. However, dipping the Host in the Chalice by oneself is not encouraged. Please you are advised to receive only the body if you cannot drink from the Chalice.
For safeguarding purposes, all children using our toilet facilities must be accompanied by parent or guardian.
