We take care to help all those who feel called to Reader Ministry to discern whether this is their calling

How to apply for Reader Ministry
We want to make sure we have the right people with the skills and abilities to be part of this valuable ministry. 

Exploration

If you are interested first you need to talk to your incumbent. You must be attending and receiving communion on a regular basis. If you need help discerning your call, LifeCall or Directions events may help.  You can find the latest events here.

For more information, please contact Vocations Co-ordinator Jude Davis at jude.davis@liverpool.anglican.org 

Training and Ministering in our Diocese

Reader training will take you four years to complete and will give you a thorough grounding in the theological and practical aspects of Reader ministry. You will be supported throughout by the Director of Studies.

After two years of study, if we receive satisfactory college reports, then you will be licensed as a Reader by the Bishop. You will need to agree to on-going training, have a Working Agreement with your parish and commit to our Ministerial Development Review process. As part of this we will encourage you to attend our Summer Study evenings and the Bishop's Conference for Readers in November. 

We want to make sure we have the right people with the skills and abilities to be part of this valuable ministry.
