We are privileged at Christ Church to have four Licensed Lay Ministers (LLMs) to assist and lead our work and worship. LLMs are not ordained but are licenced by the Bishop, after some years’ training, to take part in many aspects of the life of the church, including preaching, assisting in worship, education and small group work and many valuable pastoral duties.
Cathy Dallman has been a lay reader at Christ Church for many years. She preaches frequently at our services, visits the sick and the housebound and plays an active role in many of our social and charity events. A graduate in Zoology from London University, now retired from teaching Biology, Cathy has two grown sons – one working for the church as a missionary in Japan!
Jackie Anderson was licensed as a lay reader in November 2008. She assists the clergy in several areas, including taking the sacrament to the sick and infirm, conducting Evensong and acting as liturgical deacon at the Eucharist. Jackie is our Safeguarding Officer.
Sandra Anderson was licenced as a Licensed Lay Minister in June 2019. She currently assists the clergy as a liturgical deacon at the Eucharist and officiates at Evensong. She is a member of the PCC, a Deanery Synod representative and is the lead for our Eco awareness work. She is a podiatrist working locally and in central London and is married, with two daughters.
Amy Li was licensed as a Licensed Lay Minister in June 2021.
