Information for Incumbents

The new course for Licensed Lay Ministry (Reader) training in our Diocese has been designed to be 50 -50 partnership between the training department and incumbents.  It is run on an apprenticeship model and the practical outcomes of the training will all be learned and assessed in the parish by you as the training minister/supervisor.


Please find below some documents to to help you with your part of the training process.  It's worth both students and supervisors watching at least the first half hour of the video as well, which gives an overview of how the course works.


If you have any questions at all please do contact the Director of Studies: (tel: 0115 7838103) who will be pleased to help.
