In the UK both Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches have a diminishing number of priests who each may have two or three parishes. Lay led communion services are a logical way to supplement these. The book records homilies (sermonettes) given by the author at such services. They are briefer than conventional sermons and aim to give one or two messages. The lessons learnt during the process are described and it is hoped will encourage other parishes to adopt the practice. The author is a retired consultant physician.
