Well in a fit of paranoia it looks like the Catholic Church in Plymouth has banned wine at Communion. Now I can understand churches move from a shared cup to individual cups but from the looks of it they have barred wine altogether:

Michael Fay, spokesman for the Diocese, said that worshippers would not be deprived by only receiving consecrated bread during communion.

“One or two people have questioned the issue of only receiving communion under one form but the Bishop has explained that they are not being deprived of anything at all,” he said.

“That was the way the congregation used to receive communion – just in the form of bread – so we are just going back a little bit to what was happening in previous years.”
