A logistical question.
While I had the pleasure of assisting the Transylvanian Unitarian bishop and his provost distribute Communion at the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship Revival conference that my former pastorate hosted, the church’s architecture is unlike those in Transylvania so I don’t know how the distribution would take place there.
To recap, from what I’ve read and the pictures I’ve seen, the Unitarian churches there use a circular or polygonal table set back from a wall, in an open space in front of the (high) pulpit, and not in a chancel. The communicants encircle the table, not unlike Continental Reformed churches, though they do not sit as you might find historically in the Dutch churches. (Reception seated in pews is English Puritan from what I understand.)
How far do the communicants stand from the table and in which direction? Where is the minister? What are the respective roles of two or more ministers? Where do they stand at various points of the service?
Details about the ceremonial — the “stage direction” — would be very helpful and much appreciated.
