Reader Upbeat motion passed by Synod
Following debate, Synod passed a motion to welcome the Reader Upbeat report.
The full motion, after amendment reads:

That this Synod welcome the report on Reader Ministry, celebrating the ministry of Readers, and call upon the dioceses, deaneries and parishes of the Church of England, along with the House of Bishops:

(a) to encourage the study of the report, and in particular by clergy and Readers;

(b) to consider how its recommendations and action points may be pursued nationally and in each diocesan and local situation; and

(c) in the case of dioceses, to report back to the Ministry Council of the Archbishops' Council by July 2010 on initiatives they have taken to implement one or more of the recommendations.

It is intended that a printed copy of the report will be distributed to all Readers.

Further details and an audio recording of the Synod session is available on the Church of England website, from the "General Synod - Summary of Business Conducted on Saturday 5th July 2008" page link below.
