Exploring Reader Ministry
Readers are lay people in the Church of England, from all walks of life, who are called by God, theologically trained and licensed by the Church to preach, teach, lead worship and assist in pastoral, evangelistic and liturgical work.
The office of Reader is the only lay ministry in the Church of England which is voluntary, nationally accredited, episcopally licensed and governed by canon.
The call to become a Reader may be felt by an individual or may come from outside; from their incumbent, a fellow worshipper, or from someone who does not even attend church but recognises certain qualities.
To support this in the Leeds and Ripon Episcopal Areas, those who are exploring a calling are invited to attend one of the following evening events:
Tuesday 6th June @ 7pm - Holy Trinity Church, Ripon HG4 2EY
Wednesday 7th June @ 7pm - Bridge Community Church, Leeds LS9 7BQ
All are welcome.
