W 203 Reader Ministry Today (2010)


Reader ministry is rapidly changing, in part because the nature of public worship is changing, and in part because Readers have a wider range of ministries than previously.

What does this mean for the shape and nature of Reader ministry? Should the name change? What training is needed? And should this ministry be seen as a step on the path to ordination? This up-to-date study explores the key questions now being raised.
