Readers' Association Events
Readers meet on the first Tuesday of the month, usually at Church House, Rotherham (S65 1BL). Each session runs from 7pm-9pm (with sandwiches, fruit and cakes from 6.15pm). These events are part of our diocesan Ongoing Ministerial Development for Readers; other Lay Ministers and Clergy for whom they are relevant are also warmly invited to attend.
Each evening involves further learning in an area of ministry relevant to Readers, led by someone with particular expertise in that area. Often there is also practice at exegesis based around lectionary readings, providing valuable sermon preparation for those who preach.
Each Reader is expected to attend at least two of these sessions in the year in addition to other training/learning. If you cannot attend, you will sometimes be able to access notes and videos from these sessions - see below.
