We are working our way back to a more informal communion service led by the music group in which on 5th Sundays the children and young people may be present and involved in the worship throughout. On the first Sunday there may be specially created activities during the sermon and prayers. Gluten-free communion available on request. We currently only encourage singing by the congregation of the last hymn/song - other singing is provided by members of our music group. Before using the URL for our Zoom access https://zoom.us/j/7336597079 contact us the day before to request a password. We have a shortened service of communion, receiving communion at the altar rail (socially distanced). Distribution of communion is by pre-intincted wafers placed into the hands via tweezer/tongs.

A traditional language 'said' communion service based on the Book of Common Prayer. There is usually a psalm used between the readings and a short homily after the Gospel. We have relied on social distancing rather than face-coverings for the congregation. The priest leading worship will deliver a pre-intincted wafer into your hands, via tweezer/tongs.

On either the 2nd or 4th Sundays (details in our magazine), our 10am service usually includes Communion with a simple zoom link to help viewers access the same worship booklet as used in church. We do not have organised groups for children during the COVID restrictions but there are activities and space for young children. Gluten-free communion available on request. We have fewer songs and hymns due to dangers of coronavirus transmission, though we have excellent ventilation and heating in church. Communion is received at the altar rail (socially distanced) by pre-intincted wafers placed into the hands via tweezer/tongs. Details of which services have Zoom access are on the last page of our digital magazine http://www.barnstaple-st-paul.org.uk/this-months-magazine.pdf - but you will need to email [email protected] the day before for a password, then enter it in the onscreen box after connecting via a computer/tablet/mobile browser to https://zoom.us/j/7336507079.

Informal worship (Service of the Word) led by a music group and usually engaging the children if present as well as the adults. There will be communion if the date is a major church festival (e.g. Easter). Access by Zoom requires a password (contact us) as well as the URL https://zoom.us/j/7336597079. On some occasions our informal worship is changed to fit in with services as Harvest, Remembrance, Mothering Sunday etc.

Occasionally ,if there are only very young children present, the talk will be slightly extended to suit adults more - service time increases to just over the hour.
