A Verger is a committed lay minister who assists the clergy in the conduct of public worship. The Vergers are trained to offer assistance to the Altar Guild, Acolytes, Lay Readers, LEMs, Musicians and other lay participants of the liturgy. The local guild offers training sessions four times a year which are open to any interested person; especially alter guild directors and acolyte wardens. The national guild holds a convention each year in different locales which also offers training.
