On September 22nd 2013 9 Readers who trained with All Saints were licensed in Derby Diocese.
Canon Dr Esther Elliott, Warden of Readers for the Diocese (pictured) said: “I am really thrilled to be able to welcome the ministry of these nine people as Readers in the Diocese. It has been a privilege to work with them over the last two years in the training programme as they have offered their existing skills and time to local churches and communities and learnt some more along the way!
Julie Jones, one of the Readers, said: “The last two years of training have been challenging but really enjoyable. As I’m a busy working mum with three children aged between 10 and 14 and the owner of a small private zoo consisting of various pets which seems to be constantly expanding. I’m living proof that you can do all things through Christ!”
