    This year's LLM Licensing Service takes place at Bristol Cathedral on Saturday 21 September at 10.30am.

    This is a joyful occasion to which candidates are encouraged to invite their family and friends and members of their local church.

    The Church of England licences Lay Ministers to work with ordained ministers to encourage the church and to ensure that the church is continually looking outwards and engaging with its community and the wider world.

    At their licensing, candidates make various promises, are blessed by the Bishop and welcomed by their supporters as new Licensed Lay Ministers. LLMs receive a formal ‘Licence’ which details their new role and responsibilities as a ‘Reader’ in the Church of England.
