Lay Readership is the only lay ministry which is currently governed by canon, episcopally licensed and recognised throughout the Scottish Episcopal Church.
The heart of a Lay Reader's ministry is preaching and teaching, but they also engage with other areas of church and community life according to their own gifts and interests, and the needs of the people amongst whom they serve.
For further information please download our Lay Ministry leafet (PDF), or contact the Warden of Readers, Janet McKinnell: email@example.com (01368 850604).
