We are blessed with a number of excellent Readers who take services across the team. We also have Emeritus Readers.
Readers have completed a long and difficult training program in theology and liturgy, virtually identical to the first two years of training for Ordained Clergy.
As the name implies Emeritus Readers are appointed on merit and after long service to the Church.
Mrs Hilary Chaddock
Mr Graham Cox
Mr John Spedding
Honarary Assistant Clergy
Several retired clergy have chosen to live in our Team and attend services here. From time to time, and to help cope with the huge workload that this big team represents to our Rector and Vicar, our retired clergy will take a service.
