Diocese of St Albans Reader Training Programme Vision Statement
Our vision is to train Readers for wide-ranging collaborative leadership, through which they will bring a distinctive lay voice to the church and society. They will be ‘Living God’s Love’ through their ministry: through preaching, teaching, and leading worship, they will draw others deeper into God; they will lead and enable others in the making of new disciples of Jesus Christ; and they will pastorally serve the needy and lead others in likewise transforming communities inside and outside the church with God’s servant-hearted love.
