On Saturday 20th April, Bishop Libby admitted 11 new people to the office of Licensed Lay Minister (Reader), in a special service at Derby Cathedral.  Steve Dunning, a member of Christ Church, Hulland was one of them.

Licensed Lay Ministers are volunteers who are called and theologically trained to teach, lead, and equip the church for mission.

They are people from a variety of backgrounds, occupations, and contexts who have heard God’s call.

LLMs are communicators, story tellers and teachers who can shape the minds, hearts and souls of people and congregations around the good news of Jesus Christ, the story of Scripture and the wisdom of our tradition so that they can live out their calling as disciples in everyday life.

They work collaboratively with clergy as fellow ministers with complementary gifts and callings.
