W 230 The Liturgical Ministry of a Reader (2017)


Current regulations governing Reader ministry are cast in a rather negative tone, and seem concerned with keeping the law. But, when read carefully, they actually outline some exciting possibilities.

This fascinating study explores the whole range of options for Readers, seeing their potential as ‘complementary ministers.’ The result is an exciting and broad-ranging vision for this important ministry in the Church of England.
