Hello Crossring. This is my first post so please go easy on me.
I have a quick question about taking communion. It’s a slightly leftfield question, but i’m curious to hear other people’s opinions.
I worship in a CofE church and when taking communion, tend to dip the wafer in the wine as opposed to drinking from the cup. This was commmon practice in the church I used to attend but I seem to be unique in my present church.
Conversley, when on holiday in France a couple of years ago, my mother went to an Anglican church service and ate the wafer the moment she was given it as opposed to dipping it in the wine. Apparently this caused great confusion!
This has been on my mind a little while now so thought I’d ask other people what they think. Is one way considered ‘high church’?
Strange you should ask… my wife dips the bread in the cup. Apparently she was told at confirmation that was one way of doing it.
That said, I’d say the “usual” way was to eat the bread / wafer when you are given it, and drink the cup when you are given it. That’s the way I’ve seen it done at every Anglican church I’ve been to, not that I’ve been to loads but still.
Still, interesting question :)
