W 249 Public Worship with Communion by Extension: A Revised and Updated Commentary


The sharing of Communion by Extension remains a controversial rite. On the one hand, there is a strong argument for its pastoral need. On the other, it is easily confused with the regular service of Holy Communion, and should only ever be a temporary provision.

This authoritative guide explores the issues, explores the texts carefully, and offers clear guidance on good practice. It will be a vital handbook to all those making use of this provision.
