Keith White Licenced as Reader – 1st October 2019

It was wonderful to gather together at St Edmund’s Roundhay to celebrate Keith White’s Licensing as Reader. Keith has been in training for the past three years and it was great opportunity to mark the beginning of Keith’s ministry as a Reader at St Barnabas. During the service Archdeacon Paul Ayers gave a great address on the task of preachers and how we need to seriously engage in using scripture, Bishop Paul Slater licensed and admitted Keith to the office of a Reader and our Vicar, Dave Young, vested him with his blue Readers’ scarf. It was fantastic to see so many members of St Barnabas’ and Keith and Sue’s family and friends there to celebrate. We look forward to Keith’s continuing ministry among us!
