What is a Reader?

Readers are lay men and women, from a wide diversity of occupations and backgrounds, who recognize a call to serve God and his world through the Church of England. They work in a variety of roles and situations across the Church, being authorised by the Church of England to preach and teach, to conduct or assist in conducting worship, and to assist in the pastoral, evangelistic and liturgical work of the Church in the parish or area where they are licensed. Includes - The Duties of a Reader, Licensing and Relicensing, Dress, Ministry Agreements, Ministry Review, Continuing Ministerial Education, Deployment, Transfer within the Diocese and Transfer to Another Diocese

Service Checklist

Readers are often asked to take services at churches other than their own, especially during vacancies or holiday times. It is courteous to respect or acknowledge local customs where possible, and to point out any intended variations. Here is a Checklist to help to avoid pitfalls or embarrassing silences.
