A huge well done and congratulations to Hilda Roxborough from St John's Church, Bromsgrove who was 1 of 5 people from across the Diocese admitted to the Office of Readers by Bishop Christopher Mayfield, a Retired Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Worcester on Saturday 15th June 2013 at Worcester Cathedral.
She has been licensed to minister in the Bromsgrove Parish Team
Readers are trained and licensed lay ministers in the Church of England authorised in particular to exercise a ministry of preaching and teaching. They undergo a two year training course before being admitted to the role, after which they carry out a wide range of tasks within their parishes and beyond, especially helping others to reflect on their faith and how it relates to their daily lives.
We continue to pray for Hilda as she continues on her journey.
