UKME/GMH Readers & Lay Ministers – research opportunity

Category: Funding

Date: April 10, 2024

A proposed research project into barriers for UKME / GMH people becoming Readers / Licensed Lay Ministers. The most recently published ministry statistics (2020) indicate that only 4.2% of Readers / LLMs and 7.4% of those in training identify as UKME. As we move towards being a church where our leaders fully represent the communities they serve, we want to understand more about barriers to participation in lay ministry for potential candidates of Global Majority Heritage and how those barriers might be dismantled, as well as identifying examples of good practice in supporting potential GMH candidates.

Please see document for further details. Quotations requested by Monday 13 May.
