Children taking Communion

Child taking Communion

Steve Kersys, Children's Work Adviser, came to Marks Tey on 28th Sept and told us about children's approaches to Communion, and how many churches are now admitting children to Communion rather than excluding them until Confirmation.  He said many people ask questions about whether children understand (indeed, which of us understands?) and whether it's a free-for-all (there must be a teaching course, with a decision to make).  See the Chelmsford Diocese page here.
