The office of lay reader is a central role in the Church of Ireland in supporting clergy and this course is an exciting new chapter in the history of readers. Readers will now have the opportunity to meet and learn not just at local level, but from each other across the Church of Ireland.
This will bring a greater understanding of the wider church and appreciation of the role of a reader in the Church of Ireland. This is a very exciting development for the Church of Ireland Theological Institute as it continues to widen its role of not just training and supporting clergy but training being available to all members of the church.
Please note that applications for this year’s Reader Course are now closed
