Lincoln  Readers
What does a Reader Minister do? Readers   are   lay   people   in   the   Church   of   England,   from   all walks   of   life,   who   are   called   by   God,   theologically   trained   and licensed   by   the   Church   to   preach,   teach,   lead   worship   and assist in pastoral, evangelistic and liturgical work. The   office   of   Reader    is   the   only   lay   ministry   in   the   Church   of England    which    is    voluntary,    nationally    accredited,    Episcopally licensed    and    governed    by    canon.    There    are    now    over    10,000 Readers, with men and women represented almost equally.
