The ‘Readers’ within the church have been selected for theological training and licensing as lay ministers. There is a definite sense of ‘call’ to this ministry which is highly regarded as an important part of the ministerial structure of the Church of England. Reader ministry provides a preaching and teaching role, it also offers far more which can be as varied as there are numbers of Readers.
At present we have two Readers: Mr Chris Bowers (left) and Mr Steve Graham (right).
Also one Reader in training: Sister Louisa Anne (OHP)
