Lincoln publish Reader Report
A report on Reader Ministry in the Diocese of Lincoln, incorporating The Ministerial Review Survey, 2005. With conclusions in the form of observations, proposals and recommendations.
1. Reader ministry in the Diocese of Lincoln is manifestly in good heart; most Readers find their ministry fulfilling and a source of joy. Iit would be difficult to continue church life in the Diocese of Lincoln without the ministry of Readers.
2.To explore the mission dimension of Reader ministry, more work is required at every level on the role of the Reader in Lincoln’s New Era.
3.The long-standing role in the Church of England of this lay office, licensed under canon, as a non-stipendiary order of preachers, worship leaders, educators and pastors in partnership with clergy, needs to be widely celebrated and imaginatively deployed.
4.Because of the relatively high age profile of both Readers and clergy, and the relatively small number of those in training, we recommend a vigorous recruitment programme designed to place vocation to lay and ordained Christian ministry before the congregations of Lincoln, and the consciousness of the wider parishes and communities.
5.The Covenant between Anglicans and Methodists has serious implications for the relationship between Local Preachers and Readers. We recommend that this issue should be further explored throughout all training and formation programmes.
6.Accompanying the Ministry Review was a request for copies of the Ministerial Agreements made between Readers and their respective incumbents or supervising ministers.
