W 222 Infants and Children: Baptism and Communion (2015)
Some churches welcome children to communion; some give communion to infants. Reasons and rationale vary. Do baptized children have a right to receive communion in the same way baptized adults do? Can you answer simply ‘Yes’ or simply ‘No,’ and what are the implications of your answer? This booklet seeks to explore why this both is and is not able to be answered simply.
