Annual Celebration of Reader Service 2012
We welcomed several new Readers at this service in October 2012.
Our Handbook for Reader Ministry offers important guidance to those who have been Readers for many years, but will be of interest to those who are contemplating Reader Ministry.

Annual Reader Return
Readers are granted special permission to officiate by the Bishops. As a part of this Readers must complete an Annual Return. This document helps Readers reflect on their ministry, including activities and training undertaken that year. Download the latest form, to be completed and returned by 28 February 2013.
Church of England Readers
The Church of England Readers website is well worth exploring. It features latest news, events, resources and information, as well as the Reader Forum where you can ask fellow Readers for ideas, discover creative liturgies, seek help with resources or even ask for help with sermons.
