Admission to Communion
The General Synod and the House of Bishops have discussed the question of children receiving communion before confirmation over many years. In November 1996, the first set of guidelines were issued by the House of Bishops and on 15 June 2006 these guidelines became Regulations under Canon B15A
The Diocese has produced some documents to help parishes explore this issue further:
A Parish Application Form, the 2006 Regulations and a Resources Guide with preparation ideas for both children and church.
The diocesan step-by-step guide is currently being updated and will be available shortly.
