Training to be a lay reader

 

Over 10,000 people are licensed as Readers in the Church of England.  They are women and men who love God, and have been licensed by their Bishop to work as lay ministers of the gospel alongside their lay and ordained colleagues.

In the Church of England, the main role of Readers is liturgical and educational.  As well as preaching and leading non-eucharistic services, Readers may teach children and adults, prepare people for baptism and confirmation, and lead discussion groups and study courses.  They may also in some cases take funerals.

Reader ministry stretches far beyond the chaplaincy or congregation, however.  At home or at work, in the supermarket or at the school gates, Readers meet people where they are.  Like every Christian they have good news to share, but their training and their experience give them an extra dimension when it comes to talking about faith, listening sensitively, and offering pastoral support.

If you think you may be being called to this ministry, please speak to the Chaplain.
