Carol helps lead worship and Sometimes preaches on Sunday Mornings. She also prepares families for Baptisms and Christenings
A lay reader or licensed lay minister is a layperson authorized by a bishop in the Anglican Communion to lead certain services of worship or lead certain parts of a service. They are members of the congregation permitted to preach and preside at some services, but not called to full-time ministry.
Training to become a Reader is rigorous and follows a period of testing and preparation. It involves several years of study and continuous development thereafter.
We are grateful to have Carol ministering among us.
