The DRC under the direction of the Warden and the Assistant Directors are responsible for the selection, training and ministry of Readers in Durham. It also works in association with the Central Readers’ Council to advise on Reader ministry in the diocese.

The Council consists of Warden, Sub Wardens, Secretary and representatives elected by deanery.

A group of Readers are available to give a short presentation to deaneries/parishes or to meet individually with anyone wishing to explore this area of ministry. Please contact either the Warden or Secretary to arrange this.
