Summary
The Church of England has allowed the admission of baptised children to Holy Communion before confirmation since 1997 but currently only about 20% of parishes currently do so.

There is therefore much scope for many more churches to explore the issue and this book contains all a church would need to do so, including resources for exploring the issue with a whole congregation, case studies from real-life churches, a preparation course, an admission liturgy and advice on including and involving children in Eucharistic worship.

The book also includes theological reflection on children and the Eucharist from Michael Perham and considers the impact of receiving Holy Communion on children’s discipleship.
