‘Man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God’
The Ministry of Reading is very important. Lay Ministers who proclaim God’s Word are feeding those who listen to it. It is vital that the reader is able to breathe life into God’s word and so deliver the message in a meaningful way. Our Ministers receive training from the Diocese so that they can do just that.
‘The word of God is alive and active, it revives the soul’
Lay Readers also read out the Intercessions – these are petitions where we ask God to help us with situations or problems that need to be resolved.
