Archbishops: Prepare for 'all reasonable eventualities' in updated coronavirus guidance
Church of England clergy are to suspend the use of the shared chalice during Communion and encourage worshippers not to shake hands during the Sign of the Peace under revised coronavirus guidelines.

In a letter to clergy from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, priests are advised to suspend direct physical contact while imparting a blessing or what would normally be the 'laying on of hands'.

The changes extend all the way to the top, with the Archbishops saying that from now on, they will offer only bread when presiding over Communion services at their official residences, Lambeth Palace in London and Bishopthorpe Palace in York. ...

Thank you Adriel and Chrisgp, I was really only being facetious, as I have heard that term coming from so many men in pulpits who fancy themselves some great ones.

Dear Carol,

I was using the word ‚Äúlaity‚ÄĚ in a purely historical context. Of course there is no laity and clergy ( and definitely not sacrificial priests) in the proper New Testament church.

All born again Christians are priests, in a non-sacrificial sense, (the priesthood of all believers), and the Lord Jesus Christ is the only High Priest, the only sacrificial Priest, whose work was completed once for all at Calvary, unlike the human priests of the Old Testament, or the assumed modern priests of various professed churches today, whose work is never finished. The Epistle to the Hebrews is excellent in that regard, and though written initially to Jewish Christians, it applies just as much to Gentiles, and particularly to those in churches which profess the use of priests.

In the Anglican/Episcopalian churches the Laity are those people who sit in pews listening to Liberalism.

2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."

I find no such word in my Bible.Best to use God’s Words and not the popish man made terminologies to keep the serfs in line.

Many thanks Chris for your detailed answer. You say that your preference is for a common cup. Is this to do with the symbolism in the same way that immersion is preferable in baptism for the symbolism to be accurate?

Dear John UK,

When the Last Supper was instituted at the Passover before His crucifixion, our Lord blessed both bread and wine, and distributed them to His disciples.

In the early Church both elements were shared at communion, but the Western Catholic Church, which developed the doctrines of transubstantiation and priestly ministry, soon denied the cup to the laity, bread only on the tongue, and the priest taking both bread and drinking the cup. The Eastern Orthodox and Eastern rite Catholic Churches developed the practice of giving small cubes of bread, intincted with wine from a cup on a spoon directly on to the tongue, for the laity.

At the Reformation, all Protestant Churches restored fully communion in both kinds to the laity, the Anglicans and Lutherans retaining a common cup, while later on the Reformed and other Protestant churches generally using individual mini cups, though some of these churches now, get communicants to retain their cup and drink all at the same time. Some non- liturgical churches like the Brethren, I believe do also use a common cup. Perhaps these churches may now revert to individual mini cups, because of this virus, though I do prefer a common cup in normal circumstances.

Bro Chris, could you please explain the above paragraph, especially defining what is a "full biblical communion"? Thank you brother.

The Church of England and other Anglican churches in other countries have albeit temporarily adopted a Traditional pre-Vatican 2 Roman Catholic practice of celebrating communion with the laity receiving the bread only, and presumably the priest only drinking the cup of wine.

Roman Catholics can do this because they believe that the bread and wine both become the ‚ÄúBody, Blood, Soul and Divinity‚ÄĚ of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to avoid the laity spilling the Lord Jesus Christ on the ground, as they aver, only the priest drinks the wine at the mass, I.e., transubstantiation.

This is not what happened in Protestant churches at the Reformation. Both bread and wine were distributed to all communicants. The communion is not a sacrifice and the presiding minister is not a priest. The Church of England should not fall in line with this. Communion should be in both kinds, except that it may have to consider temporarily adopting the practice of the Free Churches, in setting aside the common cup, (which I prefer), and using separate mini cups, even of a disposable nature if necessary, as otherwise it is not a full Biblical communion.
