New Readers licensed
The Bishop of Hertford, the Rt Revd Dr Michael Beasley admitted and licensed seven new Readers and licensed a further two incoming Readers for ministry in St Albans Diocese on 12th June 2016.
In his sermon he preached on a text of St Paul and spoke of the Body of Christ being made of many parts all essential for the health of the church. He added that it was vital for the voices of the Readers, who had one foot in the church and one in the world, to be heard. He urged them to keep making sure they were heard, for the good of the whole church.
