We are committed to supporting and developing your ministry. As a condition of your licence your Bishop will look for evidence of your commitment to ongoing training and development. Here are the basic ways we support you.

Readers AGM and Licensing 29th September 2018
Our Annual General Meeting is an essential way for Readers across our diocese to find our the shape of our ministry and connect with fellow Readers across our diocese. We will have worship, a number of presentations, updates and Q & A sessions during the morning.

Tea and Coffee available from 11am. Main meeting 11.30am (Please bring your own lunch tea and coffee provided.)

Reader Licensing: 3pm in the main cathedral

Bishop Paul will license the candidates to Reader Ministry. We welcome them, their families, friends and congregations to this service.
Annual Conference - 18th November 2018
As well as hearing from an excellent speaker the annual conference provides continuing professional development opportunities for Lay Ministers, a chance to network and an opportunity to resource your ministry.

10am to 3pm with arrivals from 9:30am for refreshments. Lunch is provided. Please book your place here.

We are delighted that Andrew Bellfield from LiCC is our guest speaker and Bishop Paul will be attending the afternoon session.

The Key question that SGPF asks is….
How can what we do as a church, ordained and lay together, enable us to grow in our capacity to live out the Good News of Jesus in all our Monday to Sunday life – in service in the church and in the world?’

During our Lay Ministers Conference, we will explore how we can achieve this capacity of living out our Christianity in our every day places. We will, both through teaching and group conversations help create a framework of both being missional and equipping others to be missional using the principles of ‘Setting God’s People Free’

We look forward to welcoming all Lay Ministers.
