Readers' Association Events
Monthly training evenings are often arranged at Church House, Rotherham. The evening starts with a study of the readings set in the lectionary for the following Sunday. This will give attendees some practice at exegesis and, for those who are preaching, provide valuable sermon preparation. The second part of the evening will be a talk on a topic of particular interest to Readers.
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 be able to access notes and a recording of the talk from our website. As an example, topics previously covered are as follows: Talking to Muslims about Jesus - finding common ground and fruitful understanding; Godly Play - not just for children
