In the words of the Diocesan website: Licensed Lay Ministers (also known as Readers) are volunteer church members in the Church of England, from all walks of life, who are called by God, theologically trained and licensed by the Church to preach, teach, lead worship and assist in pastoral, evangelistic and liturgical work. The position is a voluntary one.
We have two readers – John Wright and Lynda Buckley, both of whom have faithfully served St Michael and St Barnabas for many years. Their licenses are being renewed on Sunday 12th June at St Andrew’s at 2pm and they will be also taking the service at St Michael’s in the morning.

The ten days from Ascension Day to Pentecost are a special global season of prayer.
