Diocese trains 47 new Parish Readers

Congratulations to the 47 people from 32 parishes across the diocese who have just completed the Parish Readers’ Course. 

The 6–week course is designed to help candidates understand key factors in leading worship, navigating the Prayer Book and leading intercessions.

A Parish Reader can be a great help to rectors in assisting them with church services and we are grateful to the Revd Adrian Dorrian for delivering the course and providing feedback on each candidate’s intercessions assignments.

Of the 47 people that completed the course, 17 of them are also working on their qualification to become Diocesan Readers and this will enable them to become licensed to preach and lead services across the diocese.
