Welcome to the Licensed Lay Ministers (Readers) pages. Our aim is to provide a useful reference tool for those who want to find out about Licensed Lay Ministry as well as for LLMs who are looking for information and resources.
Licensed Lay Ministers (LLMs) are lay people who, after training, are licensed by the bishop to a role that allows them to minister both in church as well as beyond the traditional boundaries of church.
- Lead worship and preach in church
- Engage in pastoral work and conduct funerals
- Acts as chaplains in hospitals, hospices, for scouts and other groups
- Lead study groups, Lent courses and confirmation & baptism classes
- Minister informally in their workplace, neighbourhood and elsewhere.
