About Licensed Lay Ministry

Licensed Lay Ministers are the equivalent to what was previously known as a Reader. Both carry a Bishop’s License, and are recognised nationally throughout the Church of England as of equal status and training. The term LLM came about in order to broaden out the areas of ministry, beyond the activities typically associated with Readers. LLMs can be involved in many different aspects of the life of the church, including adult education, small group work, mission and evangelism, pastoral ministry, youth and children’s ministry, workplace ministry, chaplaincy, and more.
