9780754666844: The Theory and Practice of Extended Communion (Liturgy, Worship and Society Series)

Three churches have recently produced liturgies for 'extended communion'. This is the distribution of previously consecrated elements at a public service by lay people or a deacon in the absence of a priest. This development began in the Roman Catholic Church with the Vatican 'Directory on Sunday Worship in the absence of a priest' in 1988. The Methodist Church produced a service of Extended Communion in 1999, and the Church of England authorized 'Public Worship with Communion by Extension' in 2001. In this book Phillip Tovey examines these churches to discover the reasons for the production of these services and their theological rationale. An in-depth examination of case studies draws conclusions highly relevant to the wider church.

About the Author:

Phillip Tovey has worked in ministerial education for almost a decade and is well known for his many publications in the field of liturgy. His last major book was 'Inculturation of Christian Worship: Exploring the Eucharist' published by Ashgate. He has conducted in-depth research into the issue of Communion by Extension over a number of years, and this book is one of the most extensive discussions of this modern phenomenon.

Review:

'This book is useful in providing information about the ministration of communion apart from Eucharistic celebration. It is pioneering as one of the first English monographs employing emerging methodologies for discovering participant understanding of worship, in the form of a bibliographically well-resourced case study of local practices and interpretations.' Practical Theology 'The ecumenical liturgical movement has emphasized consistently the centrality of the Eucharist in the Sunday gathering of the Christian assembly. In most churches the presider at the Eucharist is ordained for that ministry. But what happens when such leadership is no longer available to every assembly? In The Theory and Practice of Extended Communion, Phillip Tovey explores the ways in which three ecclesial traditions - Roman Catholic, British Methodist, and Anglican - have responded to the growing shortage of persons ordained for sacramental ministry and the consequences these responses are having on eucharistic practice and theology... Tovey's research in important. He addresses a timely and difficult question shared across denominational lines: if the Eucharist is to be central to the Sunday assembly, how will the Church provide for its celebration in the assembly? However we answer this question, Tovey helps us see that extended communion in its several forms creates perhaps more problems for the Church than it solves.' Worship 'There is no question that Tovey has produced a well-written, well-researched study and I hope his findings will be disseminated appropriately. This should, in my view, lead to a revision and reform of the current liturgical provision for extended communion within the Church of England (and beyond)... it is a 'must read' for anyone studying extended communion, and [...] many of its conclusions are important and should be taken very seriously.' Anaphora 'I believe [this book] will serve as a major contribution to the much-needed oversight of and critical reflection upon this liturgical innovation. Tovey's publication has helped me, as someone engaged in this particular task, sharpen my thinking and deepen my awareness...' Modern Believing 'This book raises important questions about the ways in which the Church of England in particular is responding to the challenges facing its parochial life... In addition to its contribution to the life and worship of the Church of England, this book will prove a useful resource for further research.' Heythrop Journal 'Tovey makes an important contribution in his use of interviews as the basis for understanding not only the actual practice of extended communion but also its interpretation by those who experience it. His analysis, connecting liturgical practice to understandings of ministry and to ecclesiology, is richly illustrated with quotations from his interviews. Those concerned with emerging understandings and practices of ministry may find some insights in Tovey's methodology and conclusions.' Anglican & Episcopal History
