Readers are lay people 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 office of Reader is the only lay ministry in the Church of England which is voluntary, nationally accredited, Episcopally licensed and governed by canon. There are now over 10,000 Readers, with men and women represented almost equally.

Our Readers support the work of Holy Trinity in many and varied capacities and we are grateful to them for this. If you haven’t done so already, please introduce yourselves to them. They’d love to get to know you.
