Lay Reader's Conference

Posted: Aug 15, 2016

The Sudbury-Manitoulin Deanery is pleased to host the 2016 Lay Readers Conference. The theme we’ve chosen is “Ministry Outside the Church Walls”.

Our guest speakers include Rev. Dr. Jay Koyle, our Diocesan Congregational Development Officer, Rev. Canon Genny Rollins who is the Incumbent at All Saints Church in Coniston and Chaplain at the Sudbury Jail and Pastor Kevin Serviss from the Samaritan Centre here in Sudbury.

Below this note you will find a registration form, a copy of the timeline for the weekend, as well as information on a hotel close to the Church of the Ascension. A block of rooms has been set aside at the Fairfield Inns & Suites by Mariott for the Conference.

Once again, our evening worship on Friday evening, following the welcome reception, will be a Taize service.

We are pleased that Norm Blanchard, Director of Music at the Church of the Epiphany, has agreed to assist us with Leadership of the service. We invite any Lay Reader who wishes to participate in the musical leadership (vocal or instrumental) of the service to contact Norm at

Please indicate your name, email address, and what part you sing, or instrument you play. Norm will send the music to you ahead of time and we will gather at the Ascension prior to the service to run through the music. These details will be communicated to you closer to the date of the Conference.
