Reception of Holy Communion in other Churches by Anglicans

Movers Bishop of Bendigo

That General Synod assures communicant members of this Church who are invited to receive the Holy Communion in other Churches which profess the Apostolic Faith, including those without an episcopally ordained ministry, that they may receive the Holy Communion in good conscience and without fracturing their membership of the Anglican Church of Australia on occasions of the following kind:

– when isolated from the ministrations of this Church
– when invited to be present for family, personal and professional reasons, and
– on other occasions permitted by the Ordinary.

(Bishop of Bendigo, 31.8.85)
