Licensing as a Lay Reader

Pat Ellison was licensed as a Lay Reader at a Sung Eucharist at St Columba’s Scottish Episcopal Church, Nairn, on Sunday 29 October 2023 at 6pm, by the Rt Rev Mark Strange, Bishop of Moray, Ross & Caithness and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church. The photo shows, from left to right, the Primus, Pat, Mr Jaime Campbell, Organists, and the Rev Anne Tomlinson, Preacher, a Vocational Deacon and former Principal of the Scottish Episcopal Institute.

Pat’s Lay Readership ministry in future will entail encouraging and equipping a range of congregations, helping them to look at change management in terms of the Scottish Episcopal efforts on behalf of creation care, environmental awareness and engagement with climate issues.
