Readers are asked if they want to be ordained deacon
The Church Times reports that more than 10% of Readers have so far responded to a questionnaire asking them about their ministry.
The Church Times (19th January) carries a brief report about the questionnaire recently sent out to Readers to find out about patterns of ministry and the current issues facing Reader Ministry. The questions cover all aspects of Reader Ministry from asking about what functions are currently undertaken and what CME is available through to how Readers believe their ministry should evolve.

Prebendary Paul Avis, the general secretary of the Council for Christian Unity and member of the Faith and Order Advisory Group is quoted as saying that Readership "pushes at the boundary of ordained ministry, though it does not cross it." Readership stood for "the validity and integrity of lay ministry."

The questionnaire is available in the Winter 2006 edition of The Reader magazine, through the link below (pdf format) or via the website Forum.
