Holy Communion at the High Altar

As part of our conversations regarding the proposed reordering and how we use our building, Nick is keen to undertake a month’s trial of using the High Altar for Holy Communion at 8am on Sundays during August.  The congregation would sit in the choir stalls and the altar will be moved slightly away from the east end allowing the priest conducting the service to face the congregation.  The first part of the service would be conducted from a Lectern at the bottom of the steps and Communion would be taken at the altar rail.  Nick would be grateful for feedback on this arrangement from any who may wish to attend.
