Common Worship: Public Worship with Communion by Extension

£4.99 £4.49

This is the authorized provision for Communion by Extension, using the Common Worship liturgical material for the Church of England.

Following permission from the Bishop, worshippers may receive communion ´by extension´ from a church where Holy Communion has been celebrated earlier.

The practice has some similarities with the communion of the sick. The main differences concern the public nature of Communion by Extension, and the resulting need for care to be taken with the overall shape and content of the service. The booklet contains sections on:
