Wonderful news – Lucinda Terry is now licensed to Bournemouth Town Centre Parish!
Licensed Lay Ministry (LLM) is the oldest recognised lay public ministry in the Church of England. Traditionally called Lay Reader, LLM is often seen as a ministry of leading worship, preaching and teaching. But it’s much more than that. LLMs are:
‘called to serve the Church of God and to work together with clergy and other ministers. They are to lead public worship, to preach and teach the word of God, to assist at the eucharist and to share in pastoral and evangelistic work. They are to encourage the ministries of God’s people, as the Spirit distributes gifts among us all. They are called to help the whole Church to participate in God’s mission to the world.’

This was a wonderful opportunity for mission and ministry across the whole life of the Church, sharing with others the good news of Jesus Christ.
