Children and Holy Communion

Children can be welcomed to receive Holy Communion in parishes in Chester Diocese. The parish needs to apply for permission to do this after a consultation process and a decision by the PCC. For more information, please contact the Adviser for Ministry among Children who can:

  • advise on the process of getting permission
  • introduce the issues to the PCC or wider meetings
  • put you in touch with parishes where children are admitted to Holy Communion
  • suggest useful resources – our library includes background reading, published preparation courses and 'The Communion Cube'
