The Church of England takes its responsibility to select and train Readers very seriously. In this region we normally require people to undertake the Transforming Faith course. This training is rigorous, enjoyable and designed so that people in full time employment can do it. And, of course, once licensed, all Readers are expected to carry on learning and undertake continuing professional development.
