Become a Scripture Reader

Do you have a gift or calling to personal ministry, and a heart for the young people of the British Armed Forces? Please consider talking to us about becoming a Scripture Reader.

…but in your hearts honour Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defence to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect

1 Pet 3:15 (ESV)

Army Scripture Readers have been serving the British Armed Forces since 1838 by providing ex-Forces Christians to work alongside the Chaplaincy in sharing the gospel with enlisted personnel.

It is a long and proud legacy—Scripture Readers accompanied British troops in the Crimea, World War I and World War II. Ten were deployed to Europe in 1944. Only nine came home.

If you have a gift or calling to personal ministry, and a heart for the young people of the British Armed Forces—please consider talking to us about becoming a Scripture Reader.

To be an Army or Air Force Scripture Reader, you need to have served in a branch of the British Armed Forces OR certain branches of the military in other countries. If you would like to discuss whether you could apply, please email us at recruit@sasra.org.uk.
