 Called Together – Celebrating Licensed Lay Ministry

On Sunday 22 September we gathered at St Edmundsbury Cathedral to celebrate lay ministry in the diocese, to witness the licensing of lay people to a range of ministries both old and new, and to mark the fiftieth anniversary of women being admitted to Reader Ministry.

Please pray for these new ministers as they serve God in their congregations and the wider diocese, and consider how God might be calling you!
