Dispensation of Holy Communion

The Churchwardens and the Parochial Church Council of Hedge End St Luke authorise dispensing with the celebration of the Holy Communion as required by Canon B14 on the following occasions:

– Sunday 20 December and Sunday 27 December 2020

– On the second, fourth, and fifth Sunday’s on the month from January 2021.

The reason for the dispensation is that in the light of the Government’s guidance on preventing the spread of Coronavirus, there is no church in the benefice which can be used safely for public worship on those occasions.
