The annual Readers' Day is an important day for ministerial development and celebration of Reader ministry in the diocese. In the morning Readers gather for our annual Reader training event, and in the afternoon they attend the Readers' Service in the Cathedral. At the start of the service all Readers reaffirm their commitment to serve God through their ministry as Readers. The Diocese then welcomes newly trained Readers and those transferring from other dioceses.
The day provides a chance to meet with other Readers, share experiences and learn from each other. An invited speaker challenges and encourages by speaking on a significant topic relevant to Reader ministry.
The Warden of Readers hopes all Readers will make this day a priority. The day provides us all with fellowship, ministry development, reaffirmation of our ministry and community support for each other and the newly licenced Readers.
