In an interview just before her retirement as Warden of Readers for Liverpool Diocese, Jean Todd praised the All Saints Reader training course as a key factor during her time as Warden. She says The change in training, I think, has been crucial to our ministry. The fact that it’s now two years to licensing, there’s a lot more practical work. I think it’s opened up Reader ministry to a lot more people and I think that’s responsible for why we have such a high level of people coming forward for Reader ministry. … I think the training has really helped – and it’s being constantly monitored and evaluated, and I think that’s been a real blessing to our ministry.
