This form of ministry has proven very successful and means a great deal to those who are no longer able to get to Church in person. It is also available for those who are recovering from illness or treatment. The team takes Holy Communion to these people either for just a few visits or in the longer term, as those who cannot attend in person are still very much a part of the Church.
The Home Communion team is made up of members of St Peter’s congregation, who are approved by the Bishop. In addition to individual visits, the team also we also takes Holy Communion to all wish in the residential/nursing homes of the parish. For those in Tiverton Hospital, visits and Holy Communion are offered with the consent of the Ward Sister.
