Diocesan Readers Service

A Celebration of Reader Ministry will take place during the service when a number of new Readers will be licensed by the Bishop. Readers are called to serve the Church of God and to work together with clergy and other ministers. They lead public worship, preach and teach the word of God, assist at the Eucharist and share in pastoral and evangelistic work. As authorized lay ministers, they are to encourage the ministries of God’s people, as the Spirit distributes gifts among us all.
